Over the past few days, we’ve noticed that Miranda has been increasingly fussy later in the day and even more so in the early evening.
While it could just be a growth spurt that we have to march through, we’re also wondering if she’s experiencing extra gas that’s causing discomfort; perhaps even colic. She’s kicking her legs more and seems to be suffering some sort of pain. The her facial expressions would break your heart… and the her cries would break your ear drums!
After not being able to give her any relief yesterday afternoon, I went to Lawtons Drugs after supper in hopes of getting some gripe water. The pharmacy was pretty busy, but I waited for my turn. I spoke with a pharmacist and we discussed the different over the counter (OTC) options. I decided to go with Kolik because it has a decent dosage of sodium bicarbonate and it was recommended for babies her age. I’m really glad I spoke with the pharmacist since they have more medical knowledge than I’ll ever have and they can give an honest opinion, but not make me feel pressured to choose a certain product.
