I'm letting my 1 month old CIO

Ok not really, but she is laying next to me on the bad screaming her little head off! To clarify I have fed her, changed her, burped her, swaddled her, gave her gripe water, rocked her, and offered her the breast a bunch of times but she won't calm down for any of it! So I'm on CM trying to ignore her so I don't have a melt down!

Thanks, I'm actually deal with it better tonight than alot of other nights. Probably because it doesn't hurt to nurse anymore.

Mine has little fits where the only thing that works is swaying back amd forth, bouncing, patting his butt and talking or singing to him.

Hope she calms down soon :(

Maybe go take a shower for now and give you tine to calm down and be more patient?

Do you have the little swaying bassinet? The one that glides back and forth? That worked well for us.

Take 5 minutes and then comfort her again.  Try rubbing her belly, bicycling her legs, patting her bottom, etc.

Why not pick her up and cuddle with her and rock or bounce her instead of just letting her scream and ignoring her? Poor baby!
