These last few days, however, his crying has gone above and beyond the normal irritability. He has even been crying during nursing, which is usually the only time he is not. So, we were brought to our wits end last night and finally tried a warm bath cause that usually calms him down.
IT WORKED....FOR ONLY ABOUT 10 MINUTES!
Yes, he is wearing a diaper cause is seems as though the instant he hits warm water, he has to make bubbles :)
|Awful picture of me but it was the first time all day he wasn't crying so we had to catch the moment.|
We thought a full nights rest would help with the mood...BUT...
When he woke up screaming...and nothing would soothe him...it was time to make an appointment to see the doctor. We got in at 10:20am this morning! Our pediatrician could really do nothing but smile when he came into the room...Sebastian was crying endlessly, just like his last visit. We explained his symptoms...crying, crying, crying and more crying! He checked for an ear infection, baby hernia, teeth, congestion...all clear. We had noticed recently that although he does not spit up, he has had a lot of reflux that doesn't make it all the way up. So, the doctor thinks he has acid reflux causing his throat to be raw and sore and therefore causing misery. We were prescribed an antacid to be given twice a day and a referral to see the gastro specialist.
At the end of the day...he is finally sleeping....for now!
OH, he is also 14 pounds 4 ounces now!!!!
