He also examined him physically to make sure that it was nothing more- besides listening to his chest and checking his ears and eyes, he checked his teeth and tonsils to make sure that his tonsils weren't enlarged (which he thought might contribute to difficulty swallowing).
So that's that. I'll make an appointment with the neurologist and hopefully, we'll be able to get in soon. Oh yes, and then sometime after Caleb turns 1 is when we will do an allergy test, though he feels that that is kind of early. It would be nice to know if we should be eliminating anything from Caleb's diet. I asked him about dairy- because up to this point, Caleb has not had any and he thinks we should wait until we have more answers before giving him dairy. So... I will have to research some yummy dairy-free cake recipes for his birthday.
On a different note, Caleb is just a wonderful boy. He is such a delight. He will be 11 months old on Friday and I just can't believe it. More on that later though...
Thanks to everyone who commented and made suggestions/expressed their concerns or commented otherwise. I appreciate it. :)
Oh yes!! I must mention his sleeping- it's still irregular and some nights are better than others- but last night, he slept from 8pm to 6:30am. He did wake up briefly twice (that I know of), but didn't even cry. Yay!! Maybe we'll have another night like that tonight. (That's the longest that he's slept since he was like 3 days old).
