    Well i didnt want to jinx it but I figured that we havent had a real bad crying colic episode since sunday and Courtney has slept through the past two nights so I think we have finally cracked why she was so unhappy!! Her milk :) We are now on cow and gate comfort and she is much better!! No breast :( but Im happy that shes had alot of breast milk since birth and shes alot happier so hey.... :shrug: We are getting alot of pooey nappies .. at least one every other day .. which is fab compared to the 4-5 days!! Still get the grizzly evening winges but its nothing compared to what we had!!

    Doc was very pleased with her... her eye co-ordination and head control she said was fab!!

    Me... Im being investigated due to my blood pressure!! Got bloods next week to check it out!! No water retention tablets though! Not adviseable at all :( So Im just still waiting for it to go down!! :(

    awww glad to hear Courtney is doing so well!! She sounds alot calmer and happier.

    I hope they figure out your BP soon. Although from your post you sound less stressed about how things are going with Courtney, so maybe now that she is happier, you will be happier which can help your BP too...

    Make sure you drink lots of water and dont eat salty stuff...

    Good luck!
