Sleep? Who needs it?
First of all, Talmage is the best baby. He can't help that he gets tummy aches. We think he has colic. The past few nights, he sleeps until 1:00 am and then stays up until 4:00 am screaming because of his horrible tummy aches. 3 hours straight...It breaks my heart. There is nothing I can do to make it better. All I can do is just cry with him. I hate seeing him in pain. We have Little Tummys Gas Relief Drops which work pretty well when he gets tummy aches during the day but not at night. Poor little guy! I honestly think that I no longer need the recommended 6-8 hours of sleep. I think it's the power of motherhood that keeps me going on 3 hours of sleep every night. Sometimes I ended up getting 6 hours but I'm waking up every 2 hours and sometimes staying up for 3 hours in a row so it feels like I'm getting no sleep. But I am making it! Just looking at that cute little boy keeps me going. I know it's all worth it! I would do anything for my little boy! I would never sleep again if I had to!
Does anyone have any advice for colicky babies? Anything that works?
