  • no, he's not gassy cause there's no signs of it and not teething cause he's been at this for a looong time now..

  • Just gotta let him cry it out. Set the timer, you'd be amazed how long five minutes of crying feels like if you don't have one. I used to do twenty minutes.

  • Yes, my DD did that around that time, too. Eventually she grew out of it, but I'd say to let the baby CIO a little. Make sure you're feeding him/her enough during the day but there's no reason for getting up once every hour.

  • My first baby woke every hour her entire first year. I was exhausted. She had colic.
