my latest addition is a bit of a bellend..
for the first three months he had colic and screamed incessantly.. we tried all the usual methods of controlling the symptoms to no avail..
so at three months.. the colic appears to ease up and we finally get to see his smile.. in fact, when awake the little fella rarely stops giggling and smiling, until he's not getting his own way..
If we don't hold him the way he wants, or if he's a bit tired, or bored then he screams.. ear-splittingly loud screams, and god forbid that we put him down so that we can do the dishes etc..
Obviously this can't go on so we started to apply the tough love, as we had to with our eldest at a similar age, but the pitch, volume and duration of screaming have all increased tenfold..
now at four months, I fear for the health of my hearing..
My eldest son, is gentle and kind, and at nearly three years old, is a quiet, bookish, sensitive soul and he's NOT a fan of the noise.. so with him at playgroup this morning I have just spent the last hour trying to let the shrieking maniac cry himself out..
he's fed clean and comfortable etc, and due a nap but I've been sat here preparing my story for when social services arrive which they are bound to do at any moment, if not the police.. the noise is horrific
I finally caved after about 67 minutes and gave him a cuddle, this caused him to fall asleep in less than five minutes..
