I have an almost 7 wk old ds who is the most unhappiest baby I've ever seen. If he isn't being held he is screaming his head off. Not regular crying...SCREAMING. From the moment I put him down until I pick him up he will scream non stop. I can't even get 5 mins to fix food or give my 2.5 yr old a bath, or pretty much anything, without him totally flipping out. Also, every night between 7 and around 930/10 he just cries and cries and cries and nothing will stop it. He ends up coughing and choking more often then not. And then He eventually just passes out. Neither of my other 2 kids did this and I am at a complete loss as to what to do. Is this colic or is he just a high needs baby? i breastfeed so could it be something im eating? he doesnt seem to be gassy or in a lot of pain, its just he is not happy unless held. And then theres the every night cry-fest. I've tried gas drops, gripe water, all the tricks to help with any possible gas issues, I've tried baby wearing and he hates it, he wont take a paci but doesnt want the breast because he just wants to suck but there is milk coming out. I am going insane and about to completely lose it if something doesn't give. My husband is in Korea til July so I have no help with anything other than my mom coming by occasionally if she is off work. She has her own busy schedule though so unfortunately she can't be much help. I am just so stressed with this baby and I feel horrible but all I think about is someone PLEASE come take this baby out of my arms so I can get a break. I know something is bothering him but I've tried everything and nothing is working. Does anyone have any advice/suggestions?
