We are going through colic - or maybe not since I know why he isn't sleeping and crying constantly.
So here is the deal, he has REALLY bad gas. It is coming out both ends, painfully so. He also seems to have slight amounts of reflux. The gas causes him to be up from 10pm - 6am, with micronaps in between - which of course we don't get and as pat and rock him to help alleviate the pain and not wake up our DD. We have tried infant gas drops and gripe water, and nothing seems to help. Then, exhausted, he passed out this morning for 4 hours. Why can't he do that at night? He sleeps fine during the day.
We are one week in, DS is our second, so we have been here before, but with a toddler and DH doesn't get paternity leave this time - new job and little vacation. I am now a SAHM so him taking unpaid leave would make it too tight, so we are struggling at this point. Here is my question, which is probably more of a complaint, why, WHY does it happen only at night? I am starting to flip my days and nights so he doesn't keep everyone up, but there HAS to be another answer.
I don't want to take him to the doctor as I know there is little they can do and don't want him on meds. Any suggestions?
