  • Feed him.
    Change him.
    Comfort him.
    I doubt he WANTS to cry. He's crying because he NEEDS something.

  • Is there a particular time of day that this happens?
    I disagree with Anon 8:31... because we've lived it.

    My son wasn't colicy in the normal sense... there wasn't a gas or belly issue. There wasn't a pain issue. We had him checked and the doctors were perplexed by it and didn't want to tell us we were dealing with colic. However- he would cry, for hours. Nothing helped, nothing made him stop. He would just cry.

    Changing, nursing, rocking, bathing, burping... nothing.

    He grew out of it. Eventually. :-)

  • first thing Doctor then he'll just get over it at some point if not then special doctor. my son did that for a while, lol some times he still dose. so just take him to a doctor if they say there's nothing wrong don't worry to much.
