My daughter is three weeks old and her crying drives me crazy. The pediatrician wants me to change her diaper before feeding her but she screams until she gets the bottle. If I feed her first and then change her she won't go back to sleep. Is there any advice that you can give to me to stop her crying or if not any ideas on how to deal with it without losing my mind or my temper?Answer Question

You need to pay closer to attention to cues. When a baby is WAILING for a bottle it means they've been hungry for quite some time and they've reached red level desperation. Nothing will soothe but a bottle. You are still learning, but now you need to know to watch for rooting, drooling, and fist sucking. those are all precursor cues. The green and yellow zone of need. You can safely change a baby and they won't wail upset.
You learn quickly to check the diaper more often and also to be prepared to head hunger off at the pass. Because when you miss all of the baby's signals...well...your ears will pay for it.
