I can hardly believe my baby boy is 2 months old!! (and as I am writing this he is actually almost 3!)
Braylon is such a joy to our family!! He is my snuggle bear that I never want to put down.
At two months he is finally starting to wake up a bit more throughout the day. He has started to intentionally smile at mommy and daddy and loves his play mat and look at the hanging toys. He also loves his bouncer in the mornings while I am getting ready for the day. AND….he loves his swing to nap in.
Right after Braylon turned a month old he started to get really fussy. He would cry a lot when he was awake, make grunting noises, and was SUPER gassy. We could tell he was in a lot pain. He would straighten his legs and stiffen his whole body. I cut out the majority of dairy to see if that made a difference. While it did, but he was still having issues. I talked to an Early Intervention Physical Therapist and she suggested that I climate ALL dairy. She also taught me some massages to do on his tummy. The key was…push harder than you think you should. That helped a TON. I did decide to take him into the doctor because nighttime was the worst. He would be up grunting all night long. Especially after I fed him. Turns out, poor baby has silent reflux.
We had no idea since he had never spit up. You know that horrible feeling in your throat when throw-up comes up and then goes back down….he was having that multiple times an hour. No wonder he was rubbing his head from side to side and grunting. After being up on some medicine for a few weeks he was like a brand new baby. So much happier!!!
At two months Braylon weighs 11lbs 15oz and is 23.5″ long.
And big brother and big sister STILL love him!!
