  • Could be gasey, teething, coming down with something like a cold or may be wanting more to eat? Try teething tablets or cool wash cloth on gums for teething and mylicon gas drops for gas or even 1 more oz of formula. And if none of these help monitor to see if your baby is coughing or anything. Also has your ds had a bowel movement normally today or in the past 2 days?

  • he's not sleeping well, he's probably overtired and overstimulated. My ds was doing the same thing. Find a way to make him nap, they really need a lot of sleep at this age. Try a swing to see if that works to help him sleep. Good luck, it's so hard.

  • Do you have a sling or other carrier?
