Addisyn's 4 week checkup

Can't believe my baby is 4 weeks tomorrow!

Addisyn's checkup went well. 22.75in(95%), 9lb5oz(50%), up from 21.25 and 8lb11oz at birth and 8lb6oz at 1 week.

over the last couple weeks starting about 8pm the only thing that comforts her seems to be nursing or feeding from a bottle, lasting until 2am or later most nights. We were thinking she may be colic and after telling him how our evenings go he agrees. Gave us a couple cans of soy formula to try and told us to try gripe water. If the weekend doesn't get better he wants us to call monday to get a rx. Overall says she is great, growing great, eating habit are great (except the colic parts). Told us we should get some smiles in the coming weeks, and we go back at 2 months

We had the same issue with the baby and it ended up being reflux. He would be fine all day then starting at 8 or 9 he would just want to eat eat eat and fuss and cry until 1 or 2 am. Now he is on cereal and prevacid. He still fusses a little at night but things are so much better now.

DD1 had reflux ans this is different. He did say prevacid is on the plan of attack, so we shall see what happens

Way to grow!!! Hope you can find a solution to her colic, I've been reading Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child and it has a whole section on colic. I skipped it over since it's not something we're dealing with at the moment but it might interest you if you are looking for a read ( Lol oh gosh is that ever a rediculous statement to a mom of a newborn Wink ) but really each chapter does a good job of summarizing itself at the end, I'll take a peak when I get a minute and see if that one gives any helpful advice.
