Any ideas to sooth a fussy baby?

Everytime I suck our her stuffy nose or use saline drops Clara gets fussy for an hour and a half. Takes her another hour to fall asleep after she calms down.

When she cries I go through the list: check diaper, check if she isn't overheated or cold, check if she is sleepy and just wants cuddling, check if she is overstimulated ,breastfeeding check..
Sometimes none of those seem to work when she gets fussy and upset.
Sadly by three hours she gets tired and falls asleep.
Any tricks or ideas from other moms?

Look up the happiest baby on the block method. Swaddling, soother, shushing, etc.

This. ^^^ I found this book at the library 11 years ago when my oldest DD was a newborn. She was insanely colicky and the techniques I learned "cured" her colic and saved my sanity. Since then I have used these techniques with many, many newborn photography sessions to calm baby and get baby to sleep soundly during the session. I have shared it with friends who have thanked me endlessly for teaching them how to calm their babies. My clients and friends call me the baby whisperer, but really its just these 5 simple steps and it works on all babies if done correctly. I HIGHLY recommend it.

This! If their tummy is hurting I have several gas extraction techniques to help them out. If its not gas a few drops of kid e col calms them down instantly for upper tummy pain or teething when we get there. The twins are both very easy babies. Love to be swaddled and they go right to sleep. We haven't had any true fussy periods with either of them yet. Only cry during diaper changes as they are hungry.

Also, wearing the baby is said to help. White noise on phone. Swinging.

At least you know what causes the crying. That's a bonus.

So far, holding him has soothed him when he gets fussy.
