Moana is a doll in the mornings. Seriously. The sweetest thing.
She wakes up in a good mood after a solid night of sleeping and eating. We hang out and play on the floor where she tries to scoot and crawl around. She hangs out on her back hitting her play gym hanging toys. It really couldn't get any better.
Then, like some sort of Cindarella at Midnight curse, the clock strikes noon. The rest of the afternoon and evening are then filled with a routine that goes something like this: scream, eat, scream, burp, scream, fart, scream, poop. Repeat.
My goal all afternoon is to get her to relax enough to take a nap before the routine starts all over again. It's like she thinks she's so hungry so she gets all frantic trying to eat as much as she can as fast as she can (all the whole hyperventilating) and then she arches her back and tosses her head to the side to stop eating and then you hear a loud fart... then the screaming... followed by more fast paced breathing and a mad dash to start eating again... until she does the arch back thing again, sometimes screaming while she's still sucking. It all usually culminates with her finally pooping.
Poor thing. It'll be nice when her digestive system is a little more developed and works more consistently. I often find myself wishing that I could help her poop. I just think its crazy that it's only the afternoon and early evening feedings that are like this. Usually all night and morning she's happy and content and apparently not in any type of GI distress. What is this all about and how can I fix it?
