We've decided not to give Alice the gaviscon at all, because we're just not sure she needs it. Also as a result of preparing to give her the gaviscon she is now not taking the colief either. Today has been a bit more difficult, but then it's Sunday and we've been to church in the morning and that's always a challenge as it's very stimulating in the baby creche. Then we had a friend back (who is going to be her godmother) for lunch, then did a video conference with her grandparents. By the evening feeds she was just not coping with being awake. So fed her as much as we could get into her and put her to bed. So we'll see how she sleeps tonight. She has taken slightly less overall today. I think the lesson is that we can't do a great deal on a Sunday after church and keep things relatively calm for her.
We'll see how we get on tomorrow, hopefully things will be improved.
On a positive note, she is now going to sleep on her own without any help from us. I put her in her cot, swaddle her, give her the dummy (which she smiles at), close her curtains, kiss her forehead and say "see you when you wake up" and leave the room. She can go over first time, but I do have to go back a few minutes later, re-swaddle and put the dummy back and by the time I'm walking out the room she's nearly asleep. Not quite sure how that has happened. However, I do have my friend's words of wisdom ringing in my ears, that everything is a phase, good and bad.
Hoping you've all had better weekends.
