Sucky things

Tonight was payback for that 3 hour nap she had the other day. We have just tag teamed the screecher for the past 4 hours. Nothing was working. Thought it might be teething so I rubbed her gums with my finger, with a cold cloth & gave her some Tempra in case she was in pain. That did nothing. Thought it was gas so I burped her, bounced her, massaged her belly & gave her Gripe Water. She had some burps but the screaming continued. Finally Calvin had to revert back to the swaddle & rock. She finally passed out all bundled up like when we were back at the beginning. Poor thing.

I know we have a really great baby, easy going, healthy & happy most of the time. Perhaps this is why it is so hard when she gets so upset. The heart - it just gets shredded into rough scraps of tissue when you can't seem to do anything right. (I just had to go bounce her for another half an hour. The swaddle has been abandoned & she lies clad only in a diaper on the bed. My back is so tired.) Then the frustration kicks in & I feel myself getting angry. You tell yourself over & over not to get angry, not to get frustrated. She doesn't know what's going on & even if she did she can't tell you. Not so you'd understand anyway. Communication gets a bit limited when screaming at the top of your lungs is all you can do to relieve the pain.

There came a point tonight where there was nothing we could do but let her cry-it-out. It was horrible & didn't work. She screamed & writhed her way to sleep but every few minutes she'd wake up again doing the same thing. Ugh. I can only imagine what this weekend is going to be like. She gets her 6 month vaccinations tomorrow & who knows how she's going to take it.

Oh ya & some idiot slashed one of the tires on my car. Thanks asshole. I don't mind spending $165 for a replacement. Really, it's my pleasure to afford you the opportunity to practice your deliquent knifing skillz. Hope you impressed somebody 'cause it ain't me & if i catch your ass trying anything like that again I will torture you with a lovely sound recording of my child splitting open the universe with her tiny wailing mouth.

The inconsolable screams are the most painful things in the world. My little girl went through colic at 6 weeks old - screamed for 5 hours straight for 3 nights in a row before I discovered Cocyntal by Boiron (and stopped all dairy). It's a naturopathic remedy that worked like magic and we still use it for upset tummy. If you're interested, I get my stash at Loblaws in the naturals section.

Good luck to you and I hope the slasher gets his feet run over by your new tire.

Thanks KDF! The hubby left the car out on the street instead of the driveway so I guess that was just asking for trouble on our quiet street ful of retired people. Weird eh?

I think I'll pick up some of that Cocyntal. It won't hurt to try it next time we have a screaming fit. She's such a great baby & the crying is no problem but when it turns to the screaming it just about does me in.
