    Answer by staciandababy at 8:23 PM on Feb. 6, 2010

  • could be the formula or could just be a fussy patch all babies have them or could be colic that doesnt usually start till around 6wks i would take her to the doctor and tell them about it and see what they say they can tell you what it is exactly

  • my son was the same way. my so's dad said at six weeks they start to develop their personalities. meaning they might cry alot or be fussy alot. that's what babies do. whenever my son gets fussy i walk him around our apartment or lay him on lap and pat his back it always works. good luck.
