  • What are you feeding him, breastmilk or formula?

  • sounds like colic, your in for a long 6-8m take him to the doc. I put mine on Zantac took the edge off.

  • My daughter was like that it ended up being constipation. I ended up switching her formula to gentlease and it worked like a charm also I would put mylicon in her bottle which also worked well.

  • ne month olds are just like that to a certain extent...the first three months are another trimester for them and they're programmed to be held constantly. Sleeps like a baby is a huge lie. **grin**

    Don't have enough to go on here, really. How are you feeding? Could be a reaction to that.

  • If you are Breast Feeding maybe he's not getting enough food. You may need to supplement with milk.
    If you are bottle feeding maybe you need to try different formula and use gas drops, the generic brands work great. I would also put a call into your dr. or make an appt.

  • My daughter was the same way! It turned out that she wasn't getting enough to eat. Instead of putting a call in to her doctor, I called my grandmother. LOL She came over, heard London crying and said "She's hungry" gave her more milk and she was fine! If it's not the feeding, make sure that he/she is not gassy. Another trick that calmed my baby was running water, the blow dryer and the vacuum. I know it sounds odd, but it worked! Good luck.
