Colic is a 4 letter word

My baby has colic. This diagnosis should have been easy to make, but it took us a trip to the doctor to figure it out. So now I have to interrupt feedings every 3-4 minutes to burp him. And the worst part? The foods I have to avoid: onion, garlic, beans, and anything in the cabbage family. But if it helps Future President feel better, it’s totally worth it but now I’m paranoid about everything that goes in my mouth. Is Thai food okay? Chinese? My favorite mashed potatoes from the Cheesecake Factory?

We did notice that he didn’t have his usual fussy period last night, so maybe the extra burping his helping.

Good news from the doctor: he weighs 9 lbs 10 oz! What a difference from two weeks ago. He’s growing out of his newborn diapers and clothes too.
