Ok so my LO has been quite fussy lately when she gets gas, and her poop started to go from 4-5 times a day, then all of a sudden to twice a day. And she grunts and strains like she is trying to push something out all day long! Then once she poops she is okay. But last night for like an hour and a half she was crying like never before for no reason, on and off. I tried to think of anything that could be upsetting her...and nothing helped. She had pretty much been awake since 6 or so, and part of me thinks she was overly tired and fighting sleep, because around 11:15pm I let her suck on my finger (she refused all pacifiers) and she finally fell asleep. Then she woke up to eat at midnight, then fell asleep till three, then ate, then slept till about 6:30 or so and ate again. Then we woke up at 8. She wouldn't sleep in her bassinet at all...I slept with her all night. Finally she pooped again this morning, and she has still been grunty like normal...but not crying like last night...just normal crying. AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH
how do I know if it's colic???
