We have a nearly 4 month old boy, who is gorgeous and healthy. The only thing is we have been non-stop miserable since having him. He was extremely late (ok), he had severe colic (we made it through), he eats every 2 hours- even at night, still (we deal with it- he's 17-ish lbs), but he is never really happy.. In turn we are never really happy, I don't really hear any other parents saying they dislike being parents and they always cherish their babies and think they're the greatest thing ever. Ours will not stop screaming his head off, if he's awake he's literally screaming or sucking on a bottle, and he wont ever sleep. He eats 7 1/2 ounces and an hour later starts exasperated screaming until he gets fed again. He accidentally tore my fiances cornea the other day by flailing his arms, I know it's not his fault, but it seems like nothing good has come out of this.... it's a real downer, we were so excited. Only one of us can work because we can't do anything when he's around, we can't wait until the weekend when her mom can babysit for a night of peace. He's a monster, we give him so much time and effort and it's still not enough for him. What happened?Answer Question

Have you took him to the pediatrician? Maybe there is an underlining problem to his outburst and crying. Maybe by nature he is just a difficult new born. You'll get through it. Your a mother and that is a super humans job.

This doesn't sound to me like typical development. He should be evaluated by his doctor. He could have acid indigestion which is helped by constantly eating. If his doctor finds nothing wrong, have Early Intervention look at him.
