OK, I know Miss K has reflux and colic, and she cries more than average. But my question is this, if you are holding your lo and they are still crying, so you move and rock, and walk, and try the swing, and try everything that has worked before, do you just sit where you are comfortable and do your best to comfort them, or keep changing positions and trying to think of something else that might work? This is what I have been doing, but sometimes I am to the point of exhaustion. So I just sit and rock her while she cries. Then I feel like I am not trying hard enough to comfort her. Or the walking and swooshing her back and forth is working, but after 30 minutes of it my arms are tired and my back hurts and I need to sit and then she cries again. Would you feel guilty for sitting for a few minutes and talking to her....
