I dont know what to do to help my baby stop crying. I feel so awful if I just let him cry. Even if I've already done 100% absolutely EVEEYTHING. I can do for him. He will scream in my face.. I've never seen him like this. It's cause he is teething early, BUT iv takin every step I need to to make it as compterable as I can. Still, high pitch screaming! My neighbors are nosie fucks, and im afraid they think my kid crys too much
Ugh... im stressed to the max! I comfort clean.when im stressed . Thats what helped me not ball along with him... I cleaned for 6 hours today .on and off , while I distractes my brain from feeling like a bad mom... true story. :( please help.. am I a awful person if I let him xry it out in his room. After iv done all I can . Im feeling so lost

Stick some frozen bananas and a couple damp washclothes in the freezer and then let him gnaw on them to relieve some of his pain after they freeze.

 Give him a bag of frozen pea's works like a charm

Hylands teething tablets worked wonders for mine.

Crying for no reason is a normal developmental milestone between 2-6 months.
Some people call it colic, but giving it a name insinuates something is wrong with the child which is not always true.
Inconsolable crying can be seen in most mammals around the same age period.

Have you given him anything for pain? A safe dose of tylenol, or benadryl or orajel rubbed on the gums might help. Also, the washcloth/banana thing in the freezer works really well. Other than that, just be there for him. I know how nerce racking it is, just remember that he's not doing it to upset you. He's probably just in pain. You're not a bad mom. We all lose our minds after hours of not being able to comfort a screaming baby. Hang in there mama!
