  • Are there lights on? Is she swaddled? Very small babies jerk a lot in their sleep and wake themselves up sometimes. Swaddling helps.

    Why do you think she is hungry? What is her diaper count?

  • shes fine at night just not during the day we always swaddle
    and shes always hungry the only thing that stops her crying is eating
    but she doesnt ever seem satisfied

  • Could be reflux.. Our went through the same thing because the formula acted as a coating on his throat. But as soon as we stopped and the reflux was more painful (which happens after eating) he would want more formula. I would definately see his pediatrician to see if that is what it is. We just keep him upright for 30 mins after each feeding and he on prevacid and bethanechol to help with pain and to keep his stomach contents from coming back up.

  • Also, if it is reflux laying her down to sleep right after a feeding will definately aggrivate the syptoms.

  • my daughter just started this - turns out she was cold. Try skin to skin or holding your child very close until they fall asleep - then just hold them until they are in a deep sleep and you can put them down.
