Okay, another question (yes, I am full of them) -
I read alot of posts that talk about night time checking. Well, I did 2:00a.m. checking for the first week after we got home. I was met with a kid that was throwing a temper tantrum (pretty much my kid only does the temper tantrum thing when he is awakened in the middle of the night and at that point he is more of a monster than a child). I consulted with the hospital and they told me that they felt that the middle of the night checking was not necessary whatsoever and to discontinue.
We have awakened with great numbers and nothing has happened in the night that I know of. For three weeks I slept on the floor in his room to convince myself that it is okay.
Now, many or most of the posts that I read about checking do mention checking in the middle of the night. Is this something that goes with the territory of the pump or what? I have a friend who checks her son at 1:00a.m. and 3:00 a.m. every single night. If I had to do anything like that my child would never get any sleep and I would be in really poor shape.
Can you please educate me about why it is you are doing checks in the middle of the night and how often these checks result in some corrective action? Additionally, is this because of the pump or what?????
