Silent But Loud

Lots of crying going on here lately. Lots. Enough to cause me to desperately e-mail Lucas' pediatrician this week, asking if there was such a thing as an "excessive crying gene". And could my babies have possibly inherited this gene? He informed me that no, colic isn't usually hereditary.

He suggested that Lucas may be suffering from something called Silent Reflux, where a baby feels the pain of reflux but doesn't actually spit up. He prescribed him Zantac and I started giving Lucas the medicine yesterday. It may be too soon to tell, but so far he does seem a little more content.
I just want a happy baby!
