    Crying...still

    Advertisements
    So, I took a video to show you what I mean. This is just her fussy cry-- she's not worked up at all cause I just changed her and held her for a while lol. But yeah, she does this (interspersed with screaming) for 5 or 6 hours straight. Aghhhh...when does this end? Does she like metamorph into a happy baby soon???



    P.S-- Sorry for the mess-- I just dried the dipes, so the hangers I hang them on are still there, along with the formula I posted in Freebies.

    Is it colic? Have you mentioned it to her doctor? (Sorry, I didn't see the other threads on this!)

    Yeah, took her to the doctor and they said she has colic. I have her on gas drops, gripe water, and teething tablets (though I've started cutting out the gas drops and she's not any fussier). She's teething too, so I know why she's fussy...but the fairly constant crying sucks and I want it to end!

    That stinks, I can't even imagine!

    My sister had colic, and my mom's tricks were either running the vacuum cleaner or driving her around until she stopped crying and then leaving her in her car seat while she slept. Make sure you walk away if you get too frustrated! I'm sorry you and baby are going through that!

    Have you tried swaddling and rocking her?

    A lot of times babies with colic like movement and the feeling of being snug.

    I feel for you! Anna was not happy until she was around 6 months.

    Tried keeping her at a 45 degree angle as much as poss?? like you can pop some books under the legs of the crib while she sleeps or you can get fancy wedges. Supposed to help?

    If she's on breastmilk, you can try changing your diet. Try cutting out gassy foods (broccoli, etc.) or sugary foods. My third son went through a colic spell and I cut sugary foods out of my diet and he settled down pretty fast.

    Unfortunately there's not much you can do for colic. When my brother and I had it as babies, my mom was given some kind of stomach tranquilizer, but I doubt they give it anymore.

    Another trick one of my friend's used is a hot water bottle (but with warm water) and put it on her babies tummy to sooth it, while eating.
