You know that quote that goes, "the days are long but the years are short"? Well, my days are short and my nights are lonnnnnnng. Which makes me laugh because there is something so insanely beautiful and hard about the newborn days. One moment you feel like you just can't handle it anymore and your crying and the next you feel so fulfilled and want a million babies. This last week Pearl has had a lot of tummy discomfort so it's been extra hard but I found a product that has been helping us get a little more sleep and wanted to share it with you!
Pearl nurses ALL the time, sometimes it feels like all day but realistically it's about every 90ish minutes. Since she nurses so often, she needs to be burped often. BUT no matter how much we try, girlfriend just will not burp. This has caused her to have lots of gas and tummy pain and we have been using these Gas Relief Drops from Mommy’s Bliss every day to help her body figure it out. I like these drops because they have absolutely no dairy, gluten or soy in them. Which nowadays its hard to find anything without soy in it. You also don't have to refrigerate them which is nice because we just keep a few in different rooms so that way I'm not searching for them in the middle of the night.
I'm still trying to figure out which vegetables I'm eating are upsetting her tummy but in the meantime, these drops have come in handy and have helped her find some relief and we are super thankful for a tiny bit of extra sleep.
