Baby cries all the time except when i hold him. what to do?
I just had a baby. He is 2 months old today, and he cries most of the time, except when I hold him in my arms. I'm told he's spoiled, since the doctor says that he is in good health and he eats normally. He does not seem to have pain or fever, but I can't change rooms without him starting to cry. It seems he doesn't like to be alone *ever* and he doesn't let me do virtually anything, I can't cook, take a shower etc. because he starts crying right away and I can't do anything at all.
Any ideas? what to do? sometimes i'm desperate and I don't know what to do with this situation. my husband is working most of the time so he is only home at night and by then I'm a nervous wreck with all the crying, I can't sleep because the baby needs to be fed every 2-3 hours, and he also needs to be changed often, I forgot when was the last time i SLEPT!
Thanks for your ideas as to how can this situation be fixed!
