Baby very fussy and not sleeping much
I do not know where to put this but I have a 3 month old who is awake some days 10+ hours at a time with no naps in between and my pediatrician does not seem concerned about this but I am. He is very fussy at times and nothing seems to make him happy, not eating, diaper change, burping, etc He is not colicy but will be just very cranky. Even when he does nap he can still be cranky. Is it a stomach ache? He is very gassy at times. What can I be eating to make his tummy upset? I have cut way back on caffeine, etc I am also taking prednisone for my Rheumatoid Arthritis but the pediatrician says that this would not cause him to be awake or have an upset tummy... but I am not sure if she is correct. Does anyone know if my medication is causing him to be so crabby? I am going in to a rheumatologist soon to switch medications anywas. Any insight at all? This is my 1st baby so maybe he is acting like any other baby, I have no idea.
Any help and advice is appreciated.
