  • My baby girl cried like this a good bit. She grew outta it. As long as he is fine and not hurt or needing something. I would carry on with my day as usual.

  • I found at that age, excessive crying meant she needed more sleep. Try putting them down for more naps during the day. Maybe that will help.

  • Is he in good health? My son cried and wanted to be held when he had an ear infection. That was usually the only way I knew he had one because he didn't run fever with them. My daughter was lactose inolerant and we found out because she would have bouts of crying all during the day for no reason.
