Hi All -
Add Hendricks to the list of babies with "trapped wind." (I like the sound of that better then saying he is gassy
) He can go from peaceful to SCREAMING in about 1 second. I feel horrible seeing him so uncomfortable. As soon as he lets a few toots go, he is right back to sleep or being calm. It has helped to burp him more often. And, we make sure he gets plenty of floor time where he can kick and wiggle and play. It helps when he is on his back and we bicycle his legs too.
And yes, he has a little acne too. We wash his face a couple times a day with a warm wet washcloth (no soap) and this has helped.
I am so impressed with you moms who make it out of the house on a frequent basis. It is too cold to walk outside for us, so trips out involve heading out to the mall. He is not a big fan of the car seat so if he is awake while in it, he cries the whole time.
We are totally looking forward to our "Baby's first Christmas"!! Can't wait to lay him under the tree and watch him gaze up at the lights.
Anyone's babes sleeping through the night? He eats at 10pm, 2am, and 6am so that's not bad at all. We are hoping that the 2am feeding goes away soon, but are not trying to force or schedule it away.
How fabulous would it be if we were all able to get together some day for one huge play date? Probably not possible, but it would sure be fun
