maybe he senses the tension in your house and it's upsetting him? babies feed off of our emotions.

Is he teething maybe? DD has always been an awesome sleeper, but when she got her first four teeth, each time it was terrible at night

When was the last BM? Are there any teeth trying to poke out?

That's what I assumed, but...Then again....DH and I didn't argue or fight. We sat outside and talked about it, but....The conversation was pretty normal. I thought maybe teeth, too. But I can't feel anything coming in yet. :/

you just posted about your marital problems, babies can sense that type of tension. He is likely responding to what is going on around him.

Yesterday and nope. :( I searched his little mouth. It seemed the only two things that would quiet him down was....I took him into the bathroom with the light off and let him look at the night light...and DH took his onesie and diaper off and let him sit naked. (It was pretty cold here last night, so the apartment wasn't overly warm) It still didn't stop the screaming, but it calmed it down a little. I checked for hairs wrapped around fingers, toes, and his peepee.

It doesn't take yelling for them to know what is going on in some way. There is no way you probably felt normal, even if you acted normal, and babies can sense this. I hope it all gets easier for you all soon.

My DD always acted like that when going through a growth spurt. Would scream herself to sleep for a week.

has either of you been sick recently? Does he have a runny nose or anything? With them so young it can turn to and ear infection quickly but even the mucous pressure in the ear will cause them to be miserable and not want to nurse because of the pain.

He could still be teething even if you can't see/feel anything. Maybe try some teething tablets? Can't hurt..they work wonders for my son. He has two teeth now and teething has never been an issue because of how well the tablets work for him.

They can feel the pain of teething well before any teeth pop through. But if he's not fussy at all during the day, I wouldn't think it was teething. So sorry you had a rough night. This too shall pass!! Hugs!

I had a stomach bug with puking like crazy and high fever, but he caught it before I did. He only does this when he's tired. He's done it twice today. I just struggled for 2 hours to get him to take a nap and he's finally asleep....I had to hold him tightly and hold his arms and legs down.



I would think it was an illness or teething if it happened more often, but it's only when he's sleepy and his eyes are rolling in the back of his head.



I hope this doesn't last long...
