Re: Doesn't it get easier? Tired and frustrated I guess.
The first thing that jumps out at me from your post is that your LO has super-fussy evenings. She's right in the prime window for colic, and colicky behavior tends to intensify at night. Both my kids were severe evening fussers. From around 3-4 weeks until 3 months they both gave us an evening screamathon. I am talking inconsolable crying and breast refusal for 2-5 hours a night for 2 months. Some things that helped my girls:
- Nurse as much as possible
- Trip outside into the fresh air
- Warm bath
- Motion (rock, bounce, stroller ride)
- White noise (radio static)
- Closeness (wear baby in a sling)
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
