Not sure if this is where I would ask but I figured it is a newborn question
So I thought that by 6 weeks is when baby’s start to calm down a bit - NOT become possessed..
My little angel was never fussy.. He would cry when he was hungry, sleepy or needed changing…For the last two nights he has been super fussy and crying from either 3am-8am or 5am to 7am. Sometimes he will wake up every hour or every half hour just crying. I can lay him on the crib, rock him in the glider, lay him on top of me or put him between us and nothing consoles him. I also change his diaper and try to feed him. Nothing really soothes him. Sometimes he will drink milk but then half hour later he spit it all up because his tummy was already full.
The witching hour starts at around 5pm where he starts up his fussy fuss (crying, does not want to sleep, does not want to eat) He starts nodding off but never fully sleeping and he gets on and off the breast (does not stay for a full feeding) then we give him a bath around 8 and he goes to bed then overnight the fussy baby is back.
I don’t get it.. Am I doing somethign wrong. He was not like this.
His diapers are the same, does not have a temperature or anythign that would raise any flags to take him to the doctor.
Thanks ladies - any and all help would be appreciated.
I thought it was a one night fluke, but last night was teh same. Today he was fussy earlier..
