Felix is 2 Months Old!

Felix is 2 months old today! He had his 2 month check up and his stats are as follows: 11 lbs 5 oz and 23 inches tall. He’s on track for growth now. He’s mostly breastfed, but we supplement with about 6 oz of formula per day. He now enjoys baths, especially if he’s able to play in the bathtub with his Otteroo. He enjoys hearing music and being read to, and loves being talked to and walked around. He has small smiles when getting tickled. Big siblings Zoey, Evan and Willow hold him and play with him often.

Unfortunately, Felix has come down with a case of colic. For about a week and a half now, in the evenings, he will cry for a few minutes to an hour. It’s heartbreaking and seems like he’s in pain. I thought it was gas at first and started giving him gripe water and gas drops. But it hasn’t done much to help. When we spoke with Felix’s doctor today, he said it sounds like classic colic. Jarrod and I are both hoping it doesn’t get any worse, and doesn’t last too long.

Felix also got his first set of vaccinations today. He’s just been pretty sleepy from them so far.

  1. Big ((hugs)) colic is no fun at all. You feel so helpless. One thing that seemed to lessen it for my youngest was turning on Baby Einstein. No, tv isn’t a great thing for little ones but it sure beat her being upset for no good reason every evening! 😉

  2. Aw what a handsome fella! If you are researching ways to help with the colic.. maybe check into our chiro. He is a pediatric chiro and they are in Pella twice a week. He’s been amaaaaaaazing with Silas and they love to help moms and babes! Anyways.. I don’t mean to be one of those offering unsolicited advice to other parents. We just love dr Josh so much. IF you want more info. Check out Infinity pediatric chiropractor. Their main office is in Waukee.
