  • She could have colic or maybe its gas. How long does she cry or when does she start crying... like after she has ate?

  • My DD does that sometimes. She doesn't sleep during the day at all. Maybe you can lay her down on the sofa next to you propped up on a pillow. That's how I got DD to sleep a little during the day. It only lasted about an hour, but it was an hour of quiet. She wakes up in a good mood. She may have trouble pooping. She could also need to burp. DD sometimes cries like that when she has an air bubble in her belly so I burp her. DD grunts and drools ALL the time. I think she is teething, but doctor said that probably won't happen for another 3 months. DD is about to turn 3 months. Maybe she needs more formula than you are giving her. I had to finally start giving DD a little cereal in her bottles b/c she was SOOOOO hungry. Doctor also informed me to give her 2 oz of pedialyte b/c it may just be that she THINKS she needs to be eating when she's awake. Good Luck. Hope she feels better.

  • I was going through the same thing with my 3 week old today. So fussy and would get upset anytime he passed gas. Refused to sleep or be put down at all. I bought some gas relief drops and he has been a happy baby ever since.

  • My baby boy will stay up if he's over stimulated then he will fight going to sleep. Your dear one might be overly tired. Try a warm bath and try to get her to nap/sleep. I normally rock my little one to sleep with his binky, swaddle him, and lay him in his crib.
