belly aches

doesn't that face break your heart?! it sure does mine.  this post is for lydia to read when she gets older.

your small belly is giving you fits.  each time you eat, i can hear the gas rolling around in your stomach.  we have talked with your doctor and have been giving you mylicon drops to help, but it doesn't do much good.  your aunt mandy showed us a new way to hold you, which helps a little.  you see, your cousin, caleigh, was a tough baby because she was extrememly colic.  therefore, mandy has a few tricks up her sleeve ...thankfully!!

after looking on the internet and talking with different nurses, i have decided to give up dairy foods and spicy foods in hopes that this will settle your belly a little better.  apparently, dairy and spices tend to upset babies stomachs.  it could take up to two weeks to get all of that food out of my system.  i am praying that this will help you.  it makes me sad when you hurt and i can't do anything to help.  i know that this is just the beginning of those feelings for me. 

we are praying for you everyday!

You need to talk with Tiffany Kennedy, Ryder has reflux really bad and she has had a hard time with it but it is getting better. It looks like nothing works but loving that munchkin like only a mother could, praying, and time. Ryder is my second grandson, by the way if you didn't know, born 4.24.2012.
