You know those pictures of sleeping babies curled around puppies or toys or their dad’s arm or a pack of double-coated Tim-Tams that are so cute they make your heart explode?
I never took pics like that of my girls. Because my girls never slept like that.
Actually, that’s not true. For the first week they slept like that… then they started crying… and crying… and crying… and crying.
They would cry in their crib.
They would cry in the pram.
They would cry in the car.
They would cry at 3am in the morning & my boyfriend & I would scurry out of our apartment block scared we’d just woken up 519 nurses and tradies & dash down to the local park where we’d walk for hours under the moon with a screaming baby strapped to our chests. Ah, good times.
I suspect now that my girls had colic, a stressful & mysterious trouble defined by “excessive, frequent crying in a baby who appears to be otherwise healthy and well fed” according to healthdirect.gov.au.
