Right now my handsome son is sleeping peacefully curled up like a peanut on my chest and I must say his quite breaths in and out are probaly the most pleasant sound I have ever heard, mainly because this peaceful sound has been so rare the past few days.
Jack has never been a great sleeper, his best night ever he woke up only 3 times (and it was sheer bs 5 minutes, he is then easily comforted and drifts right back off to sleep. It takes me being up 20 minutes tops. In general he's been a really great and happy baby always easily comforted by either his Mommy or his Daddy.
BUT (and this is a big but) this last week he has suddenly become a beast child and I have no clue what it is. He cries and cries non-stop no matter what we do, we feed him, burp him, change him, play with him, hug him, cuddle him, rub his belly, EVERYTHING we can think of and he just cries. He's been waking up atleast 9 to 12 times a night and I'm about to die. How did my happy wonderful baby turn into this. The only thing that works for even 10 minutes is to put him in the swing (a big thankyou to Jon and Jenn for lending us that life saver!). If he's awake he's screaming and he screams until he tuckers himself out and goes to sleep.
We're wondering if its tummy troubles, so today we got some gripe water and we are hoping and praying that will work!!!
