Colic!!

It started about 2 weeks ago, a general fussiness around dinnertime and now it seems we have a full-blown case of COLIC :(

He just cries and fusses for hours, it's so hard for us to hear him so upset and not be able to help him. I'm dreading when my husband starts back at night school in two weeks

Dillon is definitely not backed up, he's pooping about 4x a day! He seems to be doing a bit better this week.

I thought it might be the same for me so I had cut out all dairy for 2 weeks and switched Aubrey to soy formula for the times when I had to supplement and her fussiness just got worse.
Is baby pooping okay? I have found that Aubrey will sometimes go 3-4 days between dirty diapers and the entire time is extremely painful for her and that's when we aren't getting sleep. Once she goes she will sleep almost constantly for the next couple of days until she gets all backed up again and we start the cycle over.

I hope that is only it. Although I am also thinking some of it is what I am eating while breast feeding.

I posted about Miranda being fussy. Good news! It lasted about 6 nights and then disappeared. I think it was gas and judging by most others posts, it sounds about the same for all of you. I think their little digestive systems are working hard when they are 3-4 weeks old.

(((hugs))) We have 2 hours of fussy time from 8-10 but he can kinda be soothed with a lot of effort on my part. I'm the only one who can do it so I just pace and shush and hold the binky in.

Aubrey is extremely colicky! It usually starts between 11pm and 1am and goes to about 3 - 4 am. It starts up again from about 11:30 am to around 3:00 pm. It is absolutely horrible! I have to swaddle her up really tight and walk all around the house bouncing on my toes for hours. The moment I sit down or try to set her down she'll wake up screaming again.
