  • When was the last time she ate and had a bowel movement? If she is feed and dry and not constipated try going for s walk or car ride, my son loves baths so I would bathe him and he would mellow out. HTH.

  • Have you tried taking her for a car ride?

  • take her for a drive, when my son was fussy, my husband and I would go for a ride and he would fall right to sleep...ya know, looking back, I cherish those rides...I thought it was cute how he would fall asleep for about 45 mins then he was fine...

  • Has she had a cold lately? Temp, anything? Could you try to give her some infant tylonal or motrin maybe something hurts?

  • Sometimes a baby just needs to cry. anf first off give you baby to someone to hold DS/SO and you go take a walk around the block and calm down too and let them take the baby for 10 minutes you will be surprised once you calm down so will they.

  • maybe a car ride? my mom said that car rides always put me to sleep when i was a little baby but who knows. i am due in a couple months with my first so im kind of learning lol. it doesn't hurt to make a suggestion though, i guess.

  • Try putting her in her carseat and put her on the dryer(running). The vibrations sometimes help along with the noise if you have an old crappy dryer like mine...
    Try the vacuum if you haven't already.
