First time mother to a six week old baby boy here. Everyday, for the last many weeks, we've seen our little guy change and grow. It seems like everyday he's doing something new. Something cute, something exciting. Well, the new cool thing he does now is to cry his eyes out. For the past week he fusses and whines for hours without stop. Without pause, without let up. Always during the early morning hours, for several hours straight. It's a new found level of frustration being incapable of consoling your child. We've literally tried everything except chloroform. We've changed him, feed him, rocked him and swaddled him. Shushed him, begged him and pleaded with him. We've danced, we've sung. Made faces, even offered him money. Nothing has worked. Nothing consoles him, he's inconsolable! Nothing provides any amount of soothing. Nothing seemed to stop the endless flow of wittle tears.
That was until my husband tried the obvious. THE most simplest of tricks. A way in which many a babies fall asleep everyday, and do so all by themselves. It's something we've had to do every morning of every day for the last week. But, it's the only thing that works. My husdand made this video of a morning colicky episode as a reminder of the joy of parenthood for our son to look back on and watch when he grows up.
Anyone else dealing with a Colicky LO? If so, how do you console them? What's your method?
