This month we have been struggling more than ever with Ellen in the car. When she was first born, she loved the car. It put her right to sleep. Now, we can’t go anywhere if it is after dark. We aren’t sure why this is happening. I took her to the doctor, and he was stumped too. It’s not acid reflux. We tried driving with the light on in the car. We sing to her. I sit in the backseat. Blanket on. Blanket off. Give her a little snack. Burp her. White noise. We’ve tried it all. Our best guess is that babies are just fussier at night, and it is exacerbated by being in the car. We’re praying she outgrows this soon as nights are falling earlier and earlier these days.
So, that is what Ellen has been up to this month. What have you been doing?
