Collin might have Colic. I feel terrible. There is just nothing I can do to soothe him sometimes. He doesn't have crying fits often but when he does it's usually about 1/2 hour after a feeding and he goes crazy like he's starving. Starts rooting and sucking on his hands vigorously. I called the doc and apparently that is a sign of Colic and it starts around 2 weeks. He's been eating 2oz of breast milk every 2 hours. Doc said I can give him 2 1/2 every 2 hours but no more than that. She thinks he isn't really hungry... and giving him more will only make it worse. Last night was awful.. he took a 2oz bottle of breast milk at 8 and then screamed bloody murder like he was hungry so I then gave him 2oz of formula... he continued to scream so DH took him on a short walk... seemed to calm him down for a whole 10min. I finally caved and gave him the breast at 10:30 and then he was satisfied. He didn't need all of that... but that was the only thing I could do to calm him down. Hopefully tonight is better. I just have to let him cry and not give in and give him more to eat. It's so hard to let him cry though. I bought a M.o.b.y wrap so hopefully that will help too. Oh and did I mention that I have a clogged milk duct? I'm not getting stressed or anything.. nope. Not me. Not one bit. =) How are you girls?? Someone tell me some good news!??!?!?!
