My LO is 6 weeks old and has colic. 4-5 evenings out of the week we dance, rock, bounce, sing, and cry for hours! I know this is short lived and I hope it goes away soon, but since it just started I am fairly sure we have weeks to look forward to it I try wearing her, but she hates the sling. Sometimes swaddling helps some. She wants to suck, but then gets aggravated when the milk lets down, probably cause she is so full from all the milk, and refuses to take a pacifier, so normally by the end of the night I am rocking in the chair with her sucking on her hands and screaming after she refuses to try to comfort nurse from me. It goes on for hours! First question, she seems like she would be happier if she would take a pacifier, but she won't take one, any suggestions? Second question, I have no help. My hubby has been on mandatory overtime at work since she was born, and has to be up early, and normally she starts right as he goes to bed, or he is already in bed before she tarts. So there are times in the night I just put her down and let her cry in the bouncy seat, just for a break. No more than 5-10 min, but I feel so guilty just having her sit there, and if she isn't just crying in her seat, then I just sit with her in me arms screaming, but by the halfway point I am wore out! I don't only have my newborn, but busy in the day with a 5 and 3 yr old boys, so there is no sleeping in or napping...lol. Should I feel awful having to have this reprieve at times. It breaks my heart to see her sitting there crying, but she would be crying the same in my arms, and it isn't long, I just feel she is so mad at times....which I know she isn't, its just something they have to grow out of, but it just makes me feel bad, but physically I just can't go on any more, when I need those rest!
