    GAH.

    Advertisements
    Belle just spent 2.5 hours screaming and crying. I am so bummed. She finally passed out, but man. I did NOT know what to do! I guess there was not much we could do but try to feed her, try to burp her, carry her around, put her down, put her carseat on the washing machine while it spun, swaddle her, unswaddle her, etc. We basically tried everything.

    I don't think it was gas this time because she had burped and was farting while I was carrying her. She had eaten, but not too much... and when I would try to feed her she'd freak out. Maybe she has reflux? Or just colic?

    Her appointment is Tuesday. I hope she's alright.

    It might just be her age. I swear, all 3 of my kids went through funky, crying, eating like crazy, growth spells at 6, 8, and 10 weeks. You'll get though it. Sorry it was such a rough night.

    Not knowing what is wrong/not being able to fix what is upsetting them is SO frustrating! She may have just had an off bit. I wouldn't worry too much about it being something more until/unless it becomes a pattern. Are you nursing? If so, is there anything you have eaten in the last 12-24 hours that you maybe hadn't had at another time since she was born?

    I'm hoping it's just her age! I feel so bad for her! (And DH, and myself.)

    Not nursing! I lost my milk when we PCSed 3 weeks after her birth. We're trying to get her on a formula that's better on her belly, but the Similac for gassy babies lists Corn Syrup and Sugar as the first 2 ingredients. I might use it until I can talk to her ped on Tuesday because it does seem to help, but I don't want it as a permanent solution! My poor baby!
