  • It kind of sounds like when my son has bad gas. Try milicon drops, if it doesn't work and his crying persists, I would call the doctor.

  • If his liver is swollen, I would assume he is in pain from that. Check with your doctor on methods of relief.

  • Why is his liver swallen? I know a lot of people say to lay your baby on their back, but my kids have all been belly sleepers. I stayed up with them, and slept in a chair next to the crib, but I couldn't help but let them be happy when they slept. It's to difficult to listen to them in pain for any reason, then when they need to relax I don't know, it's your own discresion, but I'd call the doctor if it's really bad. If in deed it is gas, a little bit of leg excersises can relieve it too.

  • sounds like gas or constipation to me, Try moving his legs in to touch his stomach and back out, should help ease discomfort ( it always did with my DD) , or rubbing his tummy, try a little gripe water ?

  • Gas? Try gas drops and call his Dr if that doesn't work they might know something else.
