Exhausted. Frustrated. Confused. Those three words pretty much describe me perfectly right now.
Elden has had a rough few nights. Last night he went down perfectly, sleeping for 2-2.5 hours at a time. After his 5 am feeding, though, he was wide awake. Since then he's been cycling between eating then napping for an hour then waking up crying and inconsolable with awful gas. I have tried to be so aware of what I eat to make sure I'm not consuming foods that could be passed onto him that might upset his stomach. I asked his pediatrician if it could be a dairy sensitivity but at that time he'd only get fussy at night so his doctor said that was unlikely.
Well, I'm desperate. Starting today I'm going to go dairy-free to see if that helps his tummy at all. Because he's tired, we're tired and I hate hearing my baby cry with no way to comfort him. Wish us luck--this is going to be SO hard for me. I love dairy and it's so easy to forget not to consume it!
