Some of you mentioned it earlier...well tonight was our night. Lexi fed around 8 pm and I put her down. Next thing I know she starts wailing. I was running a load of laundry so I quickly came back up. I tried to feed her and she went ballistic. I mean 45 min of unexplained, uncontrollable, inconsolable crying that sounded god awful. I have no idea what was wrong. I shushed, swayed, swaddled, burped, sang, rocked, and nothing worked. I had a couple of brief quiet moments during this whole time, which allowed me to breathe, but then she'd start again. If I offered her the breast she would go berserk. Toward the end, I even got a bottle of formula out. Complete waste - she wouldn't touch it. Then she finally passed out in utter exhaustion on my chest. Meanwhile I didn't get a thing packed and we leave Saturday. Ugh!
Ours happened this afternoon. After a great night and fun morning I put Brock down for a nap, the nap lasted about 10 minutes and then the day went to HELL! He cried for about four hours straight...it was killer, real tears pouring down his beautiful face. I tried every trick that has ever worked and nothing. Holding him or laying him down...putting him in every holder and toy we have, we walked, sang and tried doing nothing. It was terrible, I started crying right along with him. Gratefully his godfather came over and of course that was the trick that worked. It was heartbreaking.
Must have been something in the baby air yesterday. Avery did the same thing for 2.5 hours. Hers was fighting sleep mostly I'm sure, since she's a master at that. I don't know what made her finally pass out but I was grateful she did. Hopefully today is better for all of us!
Oi, so sorry. Misha has been extra fussy lately-- still not having those extended screaming fits (which he's had before a few times), but crying on an off for an hour or two until we can trick him into going to sleep.
