  • Try changing her formula. That is what worked with all of my kids. I'm actually in the process right now trying to find the best one for my 3 mo. old. Talk to ur baby's Dr. and see what S/he thinks might be best. If u have WIC, they can help u too. Good luck! Let me know how things go.

  • My son was like this. Drove me nuts! lol. Try turning on the vacuume. This was the only thing that would make him quiet. Sounds strange, but loud constant noises can soothe them.

  • My youngest was the same way...lol. I could never put him down long enough to get anything else done around the house...lol. My neice was also like that.......I think some babies are just like that for a while. I'm sure things will quiet down eventually.
    My problem was that I always gave in to the crying and put him in bed with me at night just so I could get some sleep and my mother would always tell me to just let him fuss himself to sleep...lol.

  • Have you told the doctor this? I agree to maybe try a change in formula. Try the most gentle formula you can find. Like I had my son on Enfamil Gentlease. If that doesn't work go to soy. What about GERD? Im pretty sure thats different from acid reflux. Your doctor might be your best friend on this?
