They say (not sure who 'they' are!) that babies really start to settle down at about 6 weeks. With Jalen I hung out for that 6 week mark - until he was 6 months old, when he finally did settle down!! With Noah I am still waiting :) Harri wasn't too bad as a baby - I can't really remember much about Harri as baby except that he got a lot of wind and slept through from 3 weeks old (we were very busy with Noah when Harri was born).
Kobe has been quite unsettled the last couple of weeks - especially at night. He vomits a lot and it seems to be worse at night as he would vomit, swallow and gulp it back down and crying out in pain. Often when he is screaming you can hear it coming up and him gulping it back down, continuously. Jalen had really bad reflux as a baby, so I knew that Kobe had reflux and was getting pain from it. We tried all the reflux tricks - putting his cot on an angle, thickening his feeds, feeding him as upright as possible and leaving him upright after feeds, and although it helped him to keep it down more he was still bringing it up, gulping it back down and screaming in pain.
I went to the Dr last week to talk to him about it and he agreed to let him try an antacid medication for 3 days to see if that helped. Boy did it help! The first night we gave it he was a new boy!!! So much more happy and settled and not screaming all night in pain. Now when he cries it is more of a 'normal' baby cry - like he is hungry or tired etc, not that awful high pitched scream when something isn't right. He is even happy to sit on our knee for periods of time and just sit - without screaming constantly. Lucky for me as I am always texting away, and that gets tricky when you are trying to rock a screaming baby! :)
He was 6 weeks old yesterday and things really are settling down - not to say that he isn't a normal baby where he has his episodes of crying, but now it is a lot more manageable. He now spends more time 'playing' with his toys. His favourites are the Pooh Bear hanging toys which he will just sit and stare at and smile and talk to for ages. It's so cute to watch.
