I am totally convinced that our Little Grape has colic :( It's like a switch....he is pretty much fine and sleeps/eats well during the day and then around 7-8pm he gets really fussy/gassy and difficult to console. At 6am the switch gets flipped off and he is fine again and sleeps for like 4 hours!

I tried switching him to soy and it has definitely made his dirty diapers much more regular (he was only going 1x a day) and he drinks his bottles better, but still the gas :( I also bought some really amazing stuff called "Colic Calm" which works amazingly for the really bad stuff. Last evening he was just screaming and nothing worked to stop it, so I gave him some and it was almost instantaneous! He stopped screaming and quieted and just sat there looking around. My husband said "wow..I've never seen him do that before!"

I actually got about 3 hours of sleep last night, so better than the night before, but still praying for MORE sleep!! :) LG will actually sleep better if he is laying on my chest which is great for him, but definitely makes sleeping a challenge for me!

He has a visit with his Dad first today, then a separate visit with his mom, and then the FRS is going to take him to a Dr. appt so he will be gone for a large chunk of the day. I am looking forward to a NAP! :)

Our Andrew had severe colic- all day- all night. Never heard of colic calm but sounds amazing!

Praying for sleep for hard sometimes.
