Six Weeks

6 May
My baby is 6 weeks old!! Some how that sounds way older than 5 weeks.

Her fifth week of life was a rough one for her (and us). She was often fussy for no apparent reason…and by fussy I mean screaming, not little tiny “waahs”. Every time we tried to give her a pacifier she would gag on it. She would root around and so I would feed her only to have (what seemed like) gallons of puke on me and on our bedding. I have never done so much laundry due to throw up before! The problem isn’t colic or digestion, it is that she gets fussy and only knows how to soothe herself with my boob!
Yesterday we went to Babies R Us and bought two different brands of pacifiers to try. We had previously tried Nuk, some random Target brand, and Soothies. Now people SWEAR by Soothies but Neely HATED them.
The pacifier that has miraculously worked for Neely since yesterday afternoon is Dr. Brown’s Perform pacifier. I put a link and a pic so you can see what they look like. The nipple of it is WAY smaller and thinner than any other pacifiers we found.

This one has worked so well we didn’t try the other brand on her yet but I’ll let you know when we do!

Okay Neely is crying now so that’s all!
