So I'm new here and see this new world of acronyms, etc will take some getting used to! We have three boys, and our baby was diagnosed at 16 months. I took him to the hospital because he wouldn't sleep, was very grumpy, clingy, etc and after three nights I thought something must be wrong. Sat in emerg for ages (while he breastfed, drank a carton of chocolate milk and then motioned for more), and when I saw the doc was sent home and told to keep giving him fluids. We got home at about 2 or 3 am, and when I fed him in the morning he had black eyes and was panting and freezing cold. I sure didn't want to waste time in emerg again but decided to take him again. This time, he was seen promptly. He was quite sick ( DKA). We were there from Monday until Thursday. So that's our story. Matthew just turned 20 months so we are new at this but feel that we have adapted quickly. We have a good diabetes team here at our children's hospital. My husband and I are both equally competent at his care. Two things that I've wondered about include finding a babysitter with experience with diabetes (someone should set this sort of thing up!), and I wondered if any breastfeeding moms could weigh in. He is up a few times at night and I am reluctant to let him cry in case his levels are going too low. I could orick him a couple times/ night, but who wants to wake up to that? Looking forward to meeting you all!
