He is also colicky every night between 8-11 pm is never fun in our house. He would nurse from 8-11 if I let him, but the problem is he will eat, decide he is done settle down and even fall asleep for 10-15 minutes. Then he wakes up screaming (I keep him upright after nursing to help with air bubbles, etc so we don't feel its a reflux issue). We bounce, we walk, we baby wear, etc and he won't calm down. He refuses a pacifier. Many times he gets so worked up and has over-eaten so much that he spits up and then immediately wants to nurse again. I know colic will pass, but any ideas from those who have been there before? I know its easier to say "just nurse him" but realistically from 8-11? it can't happen and its really affecting my 22 month old's sleep schedule since his brother keeps up the whole block when he gets to wailing.
