  2. Colic - ooh, you poor thing. Sending big hugs to you and L, and hoping the new milk helps.

  5. Colic? I can recommend a product called "Infacol", which should be in your local chemists.
    Both of mine used to get colic and it really helped.

    "Is it okay?" If you're okay amd Leo's okay and B's okay, then everything's hunky-dory.

    Good for Ma. Give her a hug from me.

  9. Thanks for the update. We were worrying about you. I promise things will settle down. You'll get into a routine, start to build up your confidence, and although you'll never get your "normal" life back (sorry about that but it's true) you'll get used to a new sort of "normal" and it won't be as bad. The early weeks (and months) can be dreadful, but it does get better. Just keep repeating that over and over "It does get better. It does get better. It DOES get better. It bloody better get better. It will get better..."

  11. Hugs and sloes and the usual alcoholic beverages, plus a hearty assurance that it is indeed OK. :)

  12. Its indeed OK.

    Colic, oh dear, no fun, no fun at all. Do be warned Infocol is a silicon based product, it essentially helps the gas pockets merge and move. Being non-digestible its supposed to just slip right through, but there's been some worry about long term effects.

    With our third, she suffered, and you know what I found worked the best. Walking really fast so she rhythmically bounced up and down. You need to get a 60 hertz cycle, similar to mummy's heart beat. Fast rocking in a chair works too. Nothing like the old remidies...

    Good luck!

  14. Colic. Is. Not. Fun. But it does end eventually. Take care of you.

    Bet Ma is in heaven with grandbaby, crying or not.

  16. thought about cranial osteopathy? it worked nicely with our dd3, wish i'd known about it with dd1!

    will be booking in with ours as soon as dd4 arrives (could of course be a ds but unlikely!)

    very gentle form of treatment, some say it works, some say it doesn't but when it's tough anything's worth a try!

  18. I'm with flutterby - No2Child had a similar birth to yor lad and she had terrible colic too, and the cranial osteopathy helps millions.

  20. Just popping back to see how you are - hope everything is ok.

    BTW, I agree with The Boy, rocking works for all sorts of things, not just colic. If you find it hard to keep a rhythm, music can help. Number Three Son was a reluctant sleeper but nodded off if rocked to hits from Mo-town.
