Re: need help.. newborn-9 days old.. i'm feeling helpless
Wait, did you say a 2-3 hour stretch at night? Also know as the witching hour. That stretch of time before a long sleep where every baby in the world gangs up on all parents to drive us crazy. Chances are, it's that. But keep an eye on weight gain, what the vomit looks and smells like - is it terribly acidic or yellow? Does baby seem to be in pain or extremely uncomfortable, not just fussy? Those might be an indication of a problem. Are poops yellow and seedy? That's what you want them to look like. Not mucousy, green or streaked with blood. Otherwise babies spit up. And cry for seemingly no reason. And have gas and hiccups and burp. The world a new thing and their bodies are trying to figure this all out.
