I have a 5 week old (two weeks early) who is a good nurser besides drinking quite a few air bubbles. He generally goes 2 to 3 hours between feedings in the day and 3 to 4 during the night.
He is usually fussy around the evening before he crashes for the night. The last couple of nights he has been a lot fussier for a lot longer. He can usually be consoled with a pacifier or running water while being bounced. He won't want to comfort nurse if he is full. He usually gets more mad with gas going up rather than going down, but his burps can be stubborn if they aren't right after a feeding. This has gone on for two to three hours the last two days before he gives up. Can a baby develop colic this late!?
Aside- I did realize the first rough night I had a lot of beef and dairy that day. The next day I had half as much dairy. I will scale dairy way back today and see if tonight is a little better.
Tips, consoling, and words of wisdom needed. THANK YOU!
