    Nutts I'm going insane..

    Advertisements
    I'm starting to think J is colicky. She cries.. and cries.. and cries. She'll be fed, and changed and burped and just right in temperature. She'll quiet down for a little bit if I hold her, but I can't hold her ALL the time. And it only works if I hold her.. no one else. I'm at my wits end honestly. Whenever she's awake, she's just completely miserable. It's getting to the point where I just want her to sleep all the time.

    She doesn't like being swaddled, cause I've tried it so many times. She will be quiet for a little bit when I hold her, but she wakes up when I put her down.
    I swear I think I've tried everything. I'm going to call her dr on Monday and see what he says, but I can't deal with 2 more days/nights of her screaming.


    What else can I try?

    She doesn't take it.. when she does, she'll spit it right back out. We've tried like every kind we can find, and nothing.

    mylicon drops and gripe water usually help when Carter cries and cries and cries

    That's the story of my life right now too It's sad when you feel so helpless and all you want to do is comfort your baby without any luck.
    Try rubbing her belly? turn the fan "extractor" in the bathroom on, shhhh by her ear, etc... It's hard, all we do here is take turns when J is home so I can try to rest, if not, I get frustrated and it messes up with my milk production.

    I'm ff, and I'm on WIC so we are going to the doctors on Monday to see what formula he recommends to try and get a note to get checks for it. We give her gas drops EVERYTIME she eats, since it helps a little bit, but not very much. I try burping her all the time, and that doesn't help either. I rub her belly, and nothing. Her formula doesn't make her "sick", she doesn't spit up much, but I think it just might upset her or something.

    I just don't know what to do anymore.

    What is gripe water? Aren't you not supposed to give babies water? Is it actually water?

    gripe water helped a little for us. ellie was just like this. it was all the freaking time that she cried. i cant even imagine with another little one!!!
