My ds is 8m and eats three meals a day. Baby food, stage 3, for breakfast, small bowl of pasta or fruit, then for dinner her gets itty bitty bites of whatever I've made for dinner. With each of these meals he is offered a 8oz bottle. Sometimes he drinks the whole thing, and sometimes he only downs 4/6. He gets up at 7am and goes to bed at 730pm. Now every night forever now he wakes up any where between 2 and 4 screaming. like you are ripping his arms off! I have tried mylanta (pre his ped) but it didnt do anything except give him diarreah. I try mylacon with no affect. I even tried chamomile. if offered a bottle (which I hate to do b/c he has eaten so much during the day he can't possibly be hungry) he falls asleep right off the bat. He doesn't take a binki so that can't help. I did tell his ped and he said just let him scream, but he has been doing this for so long I can't even remember when it started, and I hate that b/c it's not like he is done screaming after 10 or 30 minutes even. He screams for 2 hours!! If I pat him he drifts off, but the second I stop and go lay down he screams all over again. I thought it was colic, but my friend said he is to old for it. but there has to be a reason why every night for the last 8m he gets up and screams. and before you ask, yes I cover, and uncover. I turn on a music box and fan, nothing, I've given baths, again to no avail. He is fine through out the day, and takes a 1/2 hour nap well and goes down with little or no fight. He is not spitty or burpie (sp?) so we don't think it is acid reflux, that and b/c the mylanta didn't help at all either kinda ruled it out. He has healyth bm's and pees regularly. I am so tired. Any ideas?
