I feverishly took notes during that video.

I don't think the Heisman means what it used to mean.  Great award, elite club, but with recent past winners like Newton, Manziel, and Winston, I think it has lost some luster.  I hope we do cannibalize each other and steer clear of distracting hype.*

*  I reserve the right to be hypocritical and hope any Buckeye wins if invited to NY, however.

Thanks Doc, we'll check it out.  We are of the same thinking...we don't want to haphazardly give medications too early.

She does not vomit and rarely spits up.  Could that still be reflux?

Ha.  No locations near me.  Man, I love living in West Virginia.....................

I remember the Rutgers game this past season on the special teams play when Bogard went down.  I didn't see him on the actual play... just the aftermath as the chucked his helmet in frustration because he knew...

I think we're going to buy one.  TODAY.  It's the one thing we don't have yet, so we'll give it a go.  Brand recommendation?

Last night, we tried to put her down at 845pm.  She went to sleep at 1130pm after another feeding.  She was just bored.  Then she slept until 330am when a nasty #2 awakened her.  We fed her again, and this time the gas came in to play, at which time we gave her the elixir, with marginal results.  For all intents and purposes, she should have slept once we put her down...she does not nap much at all, and there was no need to keep her awake in the evening.  She already was.

We're trying everything we can think of, read about, or hear from those more in the know.

Got the white noise machine as well.  (My wife had it for herself already).  Thanks for the help!

We breastfeed.  We give a formula bottle every once in a while to give Mom a break, but it's on the rare side.  Maybe 3-5 per week.  We also are careful about what she eats so that it doesn't transfer to the House White.

Comment 25 Jun 2015

Yeah... gas drops, Gripe Water, and Tummy Calm.  The latter seems to work the best so far.

Comment 25 Jun 2015

Well, and she has gas issues, also.  Borderline colic.  I don't think we can quite put her in that category yet, but it's close.

Comment 25 Jun 2015

See?  I've haven't slept, and it's messing with my ability to QC my posts.

And, fixed.

Comment 25 Jun 2015

Congrats Devin!  I really really really really really really really really really really really really hope he sleeps more than my newborn does. 

(I'll take any advice out there - anything to read on the interwebs, we've tried it.)

She likes the swaddle at first, but after about a half hour, all you hear is grunting with her trying to get out of it.  I wrap her as tightly as I could, and inevitably, we'd wake up to her with her hand(s) at her face.  Definitely been better since we stopped swaddling.

And we feed her often and right before bed.  Hungry little thing. 

Appreciate the input.  We'll figure it out.

Of course, Remy, one must ask, will you bring up the negative gray box content?  2011 was nasty, and that's how I initially got exposed to the gray box.  It wasn't a good thing.
