Is this possable? DD for teh last 3 nights from 7pm to around midnight just cries, screams and fusses. I try to feed her but she just sucks to suck. She will arch her back get all red and you can't make her happy. I keep thinking it's something I ate but I haven't had anything different lately except a few cans of A&W root beer. I haven't had any for 2 days but she's still acting like that.
That sounds like what my LO did. We assumed it was colic. Nothing seemed to help - and it eventually went away. I changed my diet dramatically to no avail. Mine would scream and cry from 8-11 every night.
jacob was EBF and had colic. classic colic. he cried all the time!!! it wasn't a digestive issue. colic is defined as unexplained crying in an infant for 3 hours/day 3 days/week for 3 weeks. jacob just cried and cried til he turned 2 months. then all the sudden it stopped. it was a VERY difficult time, but we got through it! GL. i know some things that helped him were swaddling and the swing. they didn't stop the crying, but it helped a bit.
Elias was the same way. He was fine for the first 2 wks. Then he was fussy/crying and I thought it was colic. Till his pedi said it probably wasnt colic and to elimiate milk from my diet. He is SO much better. But it takes awhile for milk protein to leave your system and then leave theirs. I now use soy milk in my cereal and non-dairy creamer. We used the Mylicon drops and Gripe Water also. Walmart carries Gripe water, atleast ours does. Good luck.
For the first few weeks Colin would cry and fuss from 7-10pm, every night. You could set your watch by it. What worked for us was running the vacuum, keeping the lights low and walking around with him. I've read a lot about this and it's pretty normal.
