Yes we have one. Lil B is typically very happy, but he has his moments all throughout the day when he fusses. We can’t figure out any one thing or several things that are the triggers and we never know when he’s going to go from happy to sad.
We know the hungry cry. We know the diaper cry and the tired cry and the bored or overstimulated cry. But that one cry that we shake our head and have no idea? No idea.
He does like to watch TV. He responds well to the football hold in front of the TV. SciFi / Fantasy (Ironman, Star Trek) is his favorite. Thank goodness. It’s in his genes I’m pretty sure.
So we pull out other tricks when the ‘no idea’ cry comes along.
- The Paci – Dr Brown’s are his favorite (they have an air channel in the bulb that reduces suction and pressure on the baby’s mouth) with his VT one a close second.
- Mommy’s BLISS Gripe Water from CVS does seem to help the tummy when he’s fussy. He’s also spit up a lot less since we started using it.
- Relax Melodies noise app – white noise, lullabies, etc help B go to sleep and stay asleep…
- …as does the Halo Sleepsack which is about the most wonderful thing ever invented.
