Every night between 8-10 o'clock my five week old will start crying non stop. I mean she literally screams and cries until she has tears and is red in the face. This will go on until about 11 or even later some nights. I don't know what to do I feel so bad hearing her scream like she does but I also have a two year old to tend to so its not always realistic for me to just hold her all night. I just don't get it she's fairly good throughout the day(just a needy whiny baby but no bloody murder screaming) but at night nothing will calm her unless I hold and rock her. Any suggestions or has anyone else dealt with something like this? I'm thinking of making a doctors appointment tomorrow but I thought I would see if any other moms on here have dealt with it to!
Sounds like colic to me. I'd suggest talking to your doctor and investing in a wrap carrier, that way you can be hands free but still holding her.
