Anyone who has met Kaylee so far knows what a mild baby she is. She is just so sweet and hardly cries at all. Well this past week that's changed a bit. In the evenings she's been fussy and not as easy to calm down as normal. Turns out our poor baby has colic. I checked the symptoms on the internet and she's got them (except the crying for 3 hours straight part, thank goodness).
I actually didn't realize what colic was until now. I thought it was just what they called babies who cried a lot for no reason. I didn't realize they cried from pain.
I feel so bad for her! I just hate knowing she's in pain and not being able to make it go away. One website said that colic generally peaks around 6 weeks. Kaylee is 5 weeks, so I'm hoping it won't last too much longer (though it might get worse before it gets better). She's actually still very mild and doesn't cry that much. In the evenings we just have to be holding her and comforting her constantly until she falls asleep and then she'll be okay through the night and next day until evening comes around again. You can see on her face when her pain gets worse. It's so sad! I'm going to try to figure out if something I'm eating is hurting her. Hopefully she'll feel better soon!
