Not for the weak

Yesterday was a peak day for Lilah's colic. I did read that it peaks around 6 weeks & typically subsides between 3 & 4 months. Which I do remember from our days with baby Carter's colic. She's 7 weeks today. After one week on soy based formula, and no significant difference, I'm trying Similac Sensitive today. I hate to change formulas, but I also hate wondering if a different formula would help. And after reading the ingredients, I realized the soy & the Sensitive are pretty much the same. We'll see. We're heading to NY for a little over a week, and I didn't want to switch mid-trip, and I want to give it at least a week, like I did with the soy. Again, we'll see...

Dan came home & I jetted out of the house for some peace. It was a hard day. Really hard. Mostly hard on my confidence. I'm giving this all that I have, and its not enough. Not enough to change how she cries most, if not all of her waking hours. I feel powerless.

I've received advice from several sweet mom friends. I welcome it; wishing that something they'd say would be something I haven't tried. Turns out we've tried it all. Which makes me feel hopeless. And hopeless is a hard place for an optimist to be.

This is what I read in the Bible last night,

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15: 13

My prayer for me. My prayer for you. Whatever you're struggling with, whatever you're trusting God for...

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy (that is our strength)
and peace (that passes all understanding) as you trust in Him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Pin It
