Goodbye Milk, Goodbye Creams
Goodbye Lactose, I'll miss you dear
May I see you come a year?
Well, we had the doctors visit, and we went over EV-ER-Y-THING. Our last hope is that it's the dairy in my diet that's causing the bouts of gas or fussiness. Well, that and maybe Shepherd just hasn't learned to poop yet. The doctor said some babies will tense up their tummies to push the poo out, but at the same time, tense up their rectums... so they're working against themselves. Worst part about this? You can't teach an infant to relax their bums, you can only hope they figure it out. We did figure that as long as you bounce Shepherd on your knee, he's okay. But I can't very well bounce him on my knee all night... I have to sleep sometime!!! So we bought a bouncy chair that has that built in vibration thingy... So far today, it's worked well. Tonight, he's still fussy, but not as much as last night. I'm hoping that cutting out dairy will help... only thing is, I'm not a fan of Soy milk, but I am a fan of cereal for breakfast, so... I bought some so that I can manage to eat something I like for breakfast... We'll see how that goes. Here's hoping that things work themselves out soon...
