Pretty, Pretty Please?

What was once thought to be gas, has now been determined as a bit of Colic in this sweet babe. Would one of you local dears mind letting me borrow your baby swing? I really don't want to buy one since there's the chance Oliver might hate it. I'll come and retrieve it from your attic and bring you a plate of cookies if you let me.

  1. Oh, Danyelle! I'm so sorry! Ever since going through colic with Chloe, I have tons of sympathy for others who go through it. I don't have a baby sling though. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

  4. I don't have either! I sold both as soon as I was done with them to reinforce to myself that I never want another baby...is there anything else I can do???

  5. Oh, I'm so sorry, although I have to admit I suspected as much. My heart goes out to you. I gave my swing to Trish, and it's probably packed up now. Otherwise you could have had it!

  6. We've got two - if we could get one to you in a timely manner, it would so be yours!!

  7. Also, we've had really good results with the Hylands Homeopathic colic tablets for Danee. Super Supplements has them!

  10. You look so pretty! I am envious of your hair.

    Maya and Oliver seem to have the same thing in mind. I just ordered Maya plant-derived digestive enzymes that I am going to mix with a little breast milk (and give to her before each feeding). They are supposed to help her digest and break down foods that are uncomfortable for her, like milk. I will let you know if they work. My sister-in-law said they saved her life, and my pediatrician gave them the green light! Right now, the tight swaddle mixed with the swing is doing the trick while I am waiting (or holding Maya and bouncing on an exercise ball...do you have one?). You could also check Craig's list for a swing at a cheaper price. I love my Fisher Price swing because it swings back and forth or side to side (which she prefers), and "last year's model" was recently 50% off at Babier R Us! Good luck! I'll be thinking of you and sending good vibes Oliver's way.

  12. Hi dandee . . . I'm Jenny Jansen's friend and I've been following your blog for months. In fact I think you even made me mommy calling cards from your etsy site. Anyway - wanted to finally post saying that I've really enjoyed your blog and your sweet life. I just had my 2nd baby (my first son) and he is 3 weeks. I'm so sorry to read that Oliver has colic - and I will be praying for you, and for him. Hailey White

  13. the side to side swinging ones worked great for my kids, but they screamed their heads off in the front to back swinging ones...good luck. i hope you are holding up ok. colic is my biggest fear.

  14. I hope he (and you) get some comfort and relief soon. I remember with Kendle there was a certain time of day that she would always scream and nothing I did helped her, it was the worst feeling. I'm sure you've tried about everything you could think of or that people have suggested, but I would finally lay her on the floor on a blanket and rub her tummy and push on her legs and move them around and it helped a little. Hope you found a swing!

  15. I have so been there... Ava cried for 15-18 hours a day for the first 4 months of her life. Turns out that she had a milk protein allergy and within 12 hours of trying her on Nutramigen, she stopped crying and all of her symptoms went away. I only tell you this because the dr kept telling us that it was only reflux and colic, but I knew that it wasn't. I was sad to stop breastfeeding, but so much happier to have a baby that didn't cry all the time. Thinking of you. I know how miserable it is.

  16. Found your blog when looking for a fruit pizza recipe. We made it and it was yummy--thanks for the recipe.
    My 5 month old had colic from day one when she was kicked out of the nursery for constant crying. After advice from a friend, I asked the doctor for a prescription for acid reflux medicine. She got on Zantac, my best friend in a pill for heartburn when I was pregnant, and she was a whole new baby. She doesn't need it anymore, but it saved my sanity for the first 3 months. Hope this helps!

  17. So (so) sorry he has colic. We are going through the very same thing right now with our new little one and my heart goes out to you. I also have to apologize for the mistaken location e-mail...I'm sure you can empathize having a colicky baby too...I am exhausted & just not thinking clearly!

  18. Sounds like a couple people have a swing for you. Hope it works out! Lots of hugs and kisses for little O.
