Week 9 and we are still struggling on with colic it is all day and i seem to be eating less and less types of food its getting a tad ridiculous so today i ate nothing and guess what COLIC !!!! Arrrrrr
We are so used to Ella crying all day that we just get on with it as you can see even Sophie isn't phased by the constant yelling, and she does her best to try and cheer her up.
Week 10 saw Ella go for her first injections and oral medication, she did cry as they were the deep tissue injections one in each leg poor thing ... one of her legs has got a bit red and swollen but that is to be expected.
The oral medication acted like a laxative on her which was kind of good and bad as she hadn't done a poo in 3 days and when it came it with an explosive fart that shot liquid poo up her back to her neck and in her hair!!!! how the hell that happened i don't know, down her legs and all over me. She weighs 11lbs 7oz now i wonder if she weighed more before the explosive poo???
Week 12 That is it the Colic has to go we are 3 months in and Ella is getting some baby rice funny how your mind can change in a week but i have quite had enough now ... and surprise surprise the colic goes 2 days later. The same thing happened with Sophie who also had colic and we weaned her and a few days later the colic disappeared. Im not advocating this as a cure and i did wait till 12 weeks so her tummy was a bit more mature but there must be some link here, her first rice portion was small and very milky and she did wriggle and have a little cry but loved eating it and the second day she managed to digest it fine no crying at last that awful colic is no more.
Ella has discovered how to roll over now which has now started to make her angry and cry as she is trapped like a little turtle on her back ... cant wait for the no crying stage!!
