  • He might not be feeling good. Bless your heart, my daughter had reflux so she cried ALOT!!!

  • Has he pooped lately? Maybe he's gassy. The first 3 months I carried DS on my arm on his belly. His head at my elbo while i gently bounced him and rubbed/patted his back. Maybe take him for a walk, sometimes a change in senery is enough to distract them. A walk will likely clear your head too, much needed after the ordeal of getting ready to go out.

  • well just remember that when you get overwhelmed he can feel it. Possibly he doesnt feel good. with my daughter now (2 weeks) and my son when he was little (3 yrs) i would walk around with them and bounce them a little or tap them on the butt. dont forget to check his diaper too. Good luck!
