Baby Headache?

We have been dealing with Randy waking (screaming and crying) in the middle of the night for two weeks. At first I thought he might be getting an ear infection; ears fine. Then I thought it might be reflux; started giving med at night. Then I thought that maybe he was just being a rotten piece of cheese. But last night I gave him Tylenol and he slept through the night without a peep. This was the second time in two weeks and the other time I gave him Tylenol too.

Now I doubt that 1ml of Tylenol is acting as a narcotic; especially to a baby that has been on Fentnyl, morphine, and Valium in his short life. I think my baby may be having headaches and that dose of Tylenol of enough to take the edge off while he sleeps. I have to call neurosurgery anyway for his CT scan results. I'll be sure to mention this to them.

  1. Hmm..Marley does the same thing and the only thing that helps is tylenol too...Let me know if you find anything out!! I thought that maybe they were night terrors/nightmares, but that doesn't explain why tylenol works to make it so he can sleep!
