(Leon at 1 month and 15 days old)
Our poor 'lil man always has hiccup attacks. Although everyone says and every book states that babies are not bothered by it- just looking at his face lets me know the hiccups bother him a lot. It's so frustrating that there is nothing we can do to make it go away faster or avoid it. We just wait 'til it finally goes away while his tiny body jolts and entire head bops at every loud hiccup.
Besides the hiccups- last night was the first time we ever had to deal with gas pains. Leon was fussy on and off from 7pm until he finally dozed off at 10pm. Definitely the longest time he has stayed awake and he was miserable the entire time. Again we were frustrated because of the lack of relief we could offer him. We held, bounced and I nursed him just to offer some sort of comfort.
I would be a very happy mom the day Leon can actually tell me what's bothering him. No more guessing and trial and errors.
