1. It's easy to rock
2. He doesn't automatically scream when goes in
3, he can't look at me & dark
4. It's portable
5. I can tend to my toddler easier as not locked in a room
I'm just using it until we get some type of routine then I'll go to cot.
So last 2 nights are interesting
2 nights ago
Gave Panadol at bed
Feed at 715 Asleep at 8pm (rocked)
Woke at 130 fed
Put back in cot at 2 he put himself back to sleep at 230 I watched monitor
Awake at 545 fed and put back in cot
Put self back to sleep by 630.
Awake at 815 for the day!
That was a good night!
Fed at 715, asleep at 8 (rocked)
Awake at 11 unsettled
Fed but wasn't very hungry didn't take a lot, put back in cot and he screamed, had to rock. Out of room by 12
Awake at 3, hungry this time
Put back in cot after feed and screamed had to rock, asleep by 4
Awake at 6 crying, put self back bit awake again at 620. Had to go hold him till 740 but he was wriggly and not settled who time in my arms.
So my thoughts are it's not a self settling thing just yet, I feel it's something bothering him, he seems so uncomfortable!!!! His poo legs were kicking when I was feeding him and he was arching and it was awful.
Naps on both days were similar. The general pattern is this
Nap 1 45 mins in pram won't resettle
Nap 2 2-3 hours in pram but needs resettling every 45 mins
Nap 3 normally on the go in capsule or arms and it's 30 mins
Nap 4 in ergo while I make dinner and anywhere from 30 mins to 1 hour.
He is 12 weeks today, but 2.5 weeks early if that makes a difference (according to wonder weeks app 😉)
We are on day 4 or losec but I think we really need to change formula but I'll give losec a week or so before doing that and call Pead. My Pead did say colic can go on for 4 months but God I'm over it acdcthd reflux sucks always waking him.
