i have a month old infant boy. Who constantly cries, and cant sleep during the day or at night. Hes always ill temepered. Im worried that it might be serious, but i dont know im a new mother. i also suspect that he may have a slight case of colic.
Could you explain what could be wrong and what i should do.
It may very well be colic or simply be is temperment as you have stated. My now 5yr old was very easy going and hardly every cried as an infant. However my now 2yr old was sick when he was first born (had jandice and was put on phototherapy)...cried all the time and was never happy unless he was in my arms..This didnt cease until he was almost 5months..A few things that did help with my 2 yr old was making sure he was nice a bundled up, burfing him often and dancing with him (that always put him to sleep). If you have tried everything, I suggest you take him to see his pediatrician....Take care.
It could be colic, but without knowing more its hard to say what it might be. Babies cry a lot in the beginning, it's their only way of telling you what they want. If it really concerns you take him to the ped. They are used to new moms coming in a lot. Mom usually knows when something isnt right. IOf your gut tells you somethings wrong, go find out.
Hello, oh you poor thing, I went through the same thing 12 years ago with my daughter. And you know what I did, may sound kind of wierd but I went and bought the mothers heart beat tape and put my daughter right in front of the speaker, turned it up a bit, not too loud but enough. I also wrapped her up real tight in a recieving blanket. She would fall fast asleep. Oh another thing I tried was. This is even wierder. I would put her in her car seat and put her in the bathroom and run the shower. That also worked for a while. Lets see the other one I tried was the washing machine, putting her on top while it was running, the sound and vibration worked sometimes.
But as the ladies said, a mother usually knows when something is just not right, and yes peds are always welcome to new moms.
And last but not least is calling grandma, she gave the best advise to me, it may have been an old wives tale sometimes but some of the things actually worked. Good luck hon and congratulations on your new lil one.
Hi I'm sorry to hear you are having a rough time. I went through the same thing with my first, it was pure torchure. He cried all the time unless he was in my arms. He was colic also had exeama(can't spell). Check him all over for rashes, feel his belly-does it feel hard? Take him and have him checked to be on the safe side. Good luck.
my baby had colic it was awful but try gas drops and i would play soft music and sing and slow dance with her it would calm her down and when that didnt work i would run the vacum. i know that sounds strange but it worked well .get bottles that are for less air its hard but just think it only last three months if it is colic. now my baby is three and the happiest kid around i joke and say she cried it all out as a baby. good luck i hope it gets better
