Different isn't necessarily a good thing.
I heard from a lot of people that having a boy would be "different, but good".
Well, THIS boy is VERY different than his sister, and not in the best way.
This is the face of colic:
From the hours of 10 p.m. to 1 a.m., approximately, my smallest child SCREAMS his lungs out, with no apparent avenue to console him.
But it's temporary.
I've somewhat adapted to my new three-hours-of-sleep-a-night routine, with the help of coffee in the morning (it's gone from a nice option to necessary...). And, thank you JESUS, Kendall sleeps through ALL of it!
Because of his sporadic tantrums, I've been sleeping on the couch downstairs next to the little guy's bouncy chair rather than putting him in his nursery (adjacent to his sister's room). I now face the challenge of crib training a baby that does not sleep well on his back (he startles himself awake). I'm dreading the transition, but so anxious to sleep once again in my cozy bed next to my husband!
Any encouragement/suggestions from mom's who've had colicky babies?
