DS is 3 weeks old and for the last two says he's been crabby unless he is pressed up against my chest (i use a Moby wrap) with his feet curled up against his chest...or on a boppy pillow kind of half on his belly and half on his side, again with his legs to his chest (and i take him and the pillow with me if i leave the room, even for a second)....only during the day though at night we Co sleep and he sleeps great...during the day if he's not in either position he just screams...he's been nursing alot more which is apparent of a growth spurt...could he be feeling the aches and pains to?

Is he gassy? I have never heard of babies hurting from growth spurts but the positions he is comfortable in are positions that would relieve him from gas pain.

He is a little...he burps really good after every feeding...and days occasionally but nothing bad
