How long has your baby been acting like this? Formula or breastfed? Any diet changes?

Jade had colic, she screamed no matter what we did, we used gripe water, seemed to help her, she also had bad gas, we switched her formula and used gas drops regularly she grew out of it after 3 or 4 months:roll:

Hmm yesterday was the first day where she had screamed for that long, but she has been waking up during the night screaming and it's only for a couple mins because I pick her up right away and she's back to sleep, so I dunno, she's formula fed.

at 5 months, no I don't think it's colic. colic usually starts by 3/4 weeks and ends by 3/4 months.

Aj was like this the first 3.5 months. Luckily he grew out of it. I think your baby is as old as mine. When did she first get it or start acting like that? AJ started around 5-6 weeks.

chub started at 2 weeks, until 1 year. and yes, it was nonstop high pitched crying 24 hours a day. I had maybe an hour total a day awake when she wasn't crying.

I don't think that's colic. Is it possible she can be teething?

Maybe she just doesn't feel good. try some gas drops. but like the other momma said at 5 months I doubt she just developed colic.

I'm gonna say teeth too, especially if she's waking at night. Orrrrr she just likes to be carried around? Jake's the same-he'll moan non stop if I try sit with him in front of the tv until I get up and walk around.
