  • Try laying him down across your legs tummy down and bounce your legs....that always helped with my son. Good luck and i hope it gets better for you

  • He may have colic. If he cries at the same time every day, especially in the evening, that could be the problem. Some babies are just fussier than others, and it is often a good idea just to put them in their cribs and let them fuss there rather than wearing yourself out trying to soothe him. You can pick him up from time to time and try to comfort him, but if it doesn't work, just lay him back down. This will eventually pass, so try not to stress over it.

  • Has he had a bowel movement ? Could be colic or maybe he has an upset tummy you could try peppermint for his tummy

  • He may have colic if he cries all the time or he maybe constipated or he maybe gassy especially if he has a clean diaper, just ate, just woke up from a nap. If he is gassy and won't burp, try laying him down and moving his legs in a bicycle motion. If he is colicky, trying giving him the Hyland's Colic Tablets that can be found at Target or Whole Foods. Sometimes, he may just need attention or maybe bored. Good luck!

  • bumping you, your baby could be gassy, try warm baths & some gripe water & lots of cuddling which I am sure you are doing. GL.

  • Have you read/seen "The Happiest Baby on the Block"? It's got some great solutions that may help you. I agree that it sounds like colic.
    Colic doesn't have a known cause, which is part of its frustration. You might try Gripe Water, too.
    Is he gassy? Are you breast feeding or bottle feeding? If you're bottle feeding, you might try another formula. If you're breastfeeding, you might try eliminating dairy or other allergens from your diet.
    Some babies are just more fussy than others, inherently. It may just be his high strung personality. But give the other ideas a try and see if something works. Good luck!! =)
