  • It could be gas or that she feels she's not near you. A really great book my sister gave me when i had my first baby, was the happiest baby on the block- which talks a lot about sleep and stuff. Do you swaddle?

  • I would say it is most likely gas.....try getting more of a burp out of her, or lay her face down on your arm and pat to relieve the pressure. She might get bits and pieces of things she has seen all day that frighten her, but I dont know.

  • Yeah it could be gas. It's tough. my first was a crier almost all evening. We got through it, but he wanted to be held a lot and nurse himself to sleep a lot and I did that for him, we co slept, and when nothing would calm him, the swing and vacuum would!
