So, what gives?
I can't tell if gas drops are helping, but they don't seem to be. I looked up what foods might be offending the little guy's sensitive belly, and here's what I found out. I might want to avoid the following:
- corn, and
- gassy veggies like broccoli, onions, peppers, and tomatoes.
What, pray tell, am I supposed to eat? Plain rice? Boiled potatoes? Bananas? That's about all I can come up with.
Anyone have any brilliant ideas? This mama is going to need some serious help if I'm going to exist on NOTHING INTERESTING OR TASTY. Somebody help me!
For the record, if anyone says it's colic, I'll scream. It's not colic. He doesn't cry nearly enough to qualify it as colic. And as soon as his little gas fits pass (no pun intended), he's fine. Plus, I totally drank the Harvey Karp Kool-Aid, and I don't believe that he could have colic this early...especially as a preemie.
I am about to read up a bit on hyperlactation syndrome. And I'm going to hope that's not the problem.
