My son won't stop crying. it sounds like he is getting murdered. He ate, he got burped and a clean butt. He falls asleep, then wakes up and starts all over again. Hes only 3 weeks old too.



And Im home alone.

My son does that sometimes, he is 2 weeks old. Try laying him on your chest & patting his back until he falls asleep. That is the only thing that calms my son down when he gets in those moods. But the bad thing is, I have to make sure he is in a deep sleep when I lay him down or he will wake up & start screaming again until I put him back on my chest.

That usally does the trick for him.

Rub him down with lotiion. Odd to silence crying but if he feels physically uncomfortable in any way he'll scream. Massage his stomach too. That helps with gas. DS screamed & screamed sometimes until i'd be just as hysterical as he was. Talking to him helped a bit, he's also quite fond of a pacifier

Maybe try a nice bath? Definetly add some lotion and massage him. Do you have a car to maybe take him for a drive? When Noah gets like this, i tend to put him on the breast to suckle in comfort..usually i use the side-lying position. Not sure if you BF or not.
