Anyone deal with it??
Damien has been such a different baby in the last few weeks. He used to sleep well and eat and nap during the day with normal fussy periods. But the last week or two he has been incredibly cranky. The last week has been the worst, even worse than brand new baby first few days home.
He cries almost all the time. A quiet time of more than 10 minutes is lucky. He will be happy for the first hour of the day if I'm lucky. after that he is constantly crying. You can tell there is something wrong but nothing seems to work. Sometimes bouncing him will help, sometimes white noise, sometimes rocking, sometimes nothing. We use gas drops when he seems really gassy but they don't typically seem to do anything. He always swallows hard when he nurses as if he's guzzling and when he isn't eating we hear his swallow a good amount of the time. And when he does swallow it sounds like a hard swallow. He doesn't spit up a lot but does a little bit. He has also been fighting to eat a lot. Just screaming at my nipple while its in his mouth. Sometimes I can squirt milk into his mouth and he'll eat other times I have to stop and try to soothe him and try again.
Sorry this is all over the place I'm just trying to figure out what's wrong other than a wonder week/growth spurt since this is far worse than he's ever been. He has an appointment tomorrow for his two month check up so I'm definitely going to bring it up.
