It’s almost 3am and EJ stopped screaming. We brought him downstairs and moved ER back up stairs. I started up a playlist on the TV and he settled down to the music. He acts like he did when he had collic after he was born. I need to find out if it can reappear later on down the road, like now.
ER woke up cause of the screaming and snuggled down with me on the couch and is sleeping again. I’m so tired .
Thank you for sharing our lives. LT
My younger daughter had colic as an infant, but then later on started waking up screaming again. Another parent told me it sounded like “night terrors”, and suggested that we remove ALL white and refined sugars from her diet. It seemed silly but we were ready to try anything. It worked! The only times she woke up screaming after that, we were able to trace it back to sugared cereal or something similar
The downside is that fruit juice sweetened items are more expensive. But a full night’s sleep for us all was worth it!
I know it is depressing and exhausting, but don’t worry and don’t loose hope. New cure’s and solutions are being developed to help solve this illness.
