Today the wee man slept from 7am to 3pm waking only for 10 minutes 2 or 3 times. Yesterday evening, see photo, I thought he was on the mend. But it seems he must have developed some new sores inside his mouth overnight. For breakfast dad tried to feed him toast and cheese to no avail. By 1pm we were worried enough to try sweets, chocolate and ice cream but all were spat back out. He pointed to his mouth each time and wailed. At dinner time he managed about 3 teaspoonfuls of soup. But the worst moment came at bed time. So desperate for some comfort he practically jumped into my arms for his once a day slug of breast milk, only to find whatever sore inside his mouth had meant he couldn't eat all day, also meant he couldn't suck. Devastated he cuddled up in my arms and sobbed his way quietly to sleep, doodahless :-(
