  • stay calm and swaddle her up so she feels comfy. try rocking her and a pacifier too. she sounds collicky to me. u can ask the doc for some drops to help with the gas. a 7 week old is too young to let cry for long periods imo. its tough especially if this is your first baby but sometimes there isnt much u can do except to make sure they r fed, dry and as comfortable as u can make them. then tough it out. if its is colick it will go away in about 3 months. i know , i know. get dh to help out with the walking or rocking and take shifts so u can get some sleep. then sleep whenever the baby sleeps until u get over this rough period. get her checked out with the peditricain to make sure nothing is wrong. it does get better.good luck!

  • Is she hungry? Babies dont sleep through the night. It's not uncommon for them to wake up all the time.
    Do you swaddle her? Does she stop if she' sbeing held?
