Our Plunket Nurse is really good. She was the only person who picked up that he has a tongue tie. Its not part of Plunket its privately run but for the public. We decided not to go because we had Blake at after hours last night because he was so hysterical that he vomited. They said colic so we are just giving up and dealing with it.
Nothing can be done now. Ive learnt to live with it. He hates being swaddled. We wrap a muslin around him under his arms for more comfort. He freaks out if his arms are swaddled. The top end of his cot has been raised pretty much since he was born because he was a c-section breech birth he had all the mucus in his lungs and then this all started so we kept it this way.
Yeah we wish there wasnt a risk with them sleeping on their tummy. He prefers it but no its not worth the chance of him dying.
How did you deal with all the crying? It gets to us and its becoming too hard to deal with. Especially with both of us having a constant headache.
