Help! Our 8-wk old daughter has started crying in the evenings but it goes on for hours - I mean she starts late afternoon and carries on till 2am sometimes. Last night she seemed to be frantically trying to feed all the time - snuffling and turning her head. I had milk but after several hours I felt thoroughly exhausted and resentful. Sometimes it's clear she has colic, but last night it wasn't clear that she was in pain. I've stopped eating dairy, wheat, pulses and anything from the cabbage family to help with the colic, don't feel I can cut anything else out. She is pretty windy and often seems to struggle to poo.
I've a toddler who wakes at 6 so no chance of a lie-in or sleep during day, and getting desperate. Anyone have any ideas what's going on? Massive growth spurt? She's gaining weight well, sleeps in sling during day but every time I take her out she starts crying before long so I tend to put her back in sling for a lot of the day
