Serenely dreaming!

What on earth is Colic and how come a breast fed baby has it?

Poor Angelo. He has had stomach ache forever and a really bad problem with wind; from both ends, and for what seems like his entire life (all three weeks of it LOL). He grunts, groans and draws his legs up like no other.(child of mine that is) I knew there was something not quite right.

I invested in bottle of INFACOL last night and while it made no difference then, it has today. My little man has been asleep now for a couple of hours. What a joy. I should be tidying up or doing something constructive but I am enjoying the time without him needing me; to feed or cuddle him because he is in pain.

Neither of my other two had Colic.

I have never known a child cry, break wind and go red, so much. Poor wee thing. He is settled and happy now . I hope this lasts (for my sake as much as his). :)

I am loving him serenely dreaming.
