C had cried pretty much non stop for the past four days. and it doesnt seem to be getting better. I havent given her any gas drops but i dont believe she has any gas pain, she doesnt seem to be straining to push out gas or anything, so i dont think thats it.
The only time she calms down is if i hold her against my chest, obviously thats making it hard to get things done around the house. H ordered me a moby but it wont be here till possible next monday so i need something to help in the meantime.
She wont sit in her swing, her boppy, her carseat, her bouncy, or anything. She will literally SCREAM until i pick her back up. Swaddling helps, and even though the escape proof swaddle scares the hell out of me, i did it this morning because i couldnt take it anymore and she was using her hands to keep herself awake, But now shes crying because she HATES this swaddle and shes struggling to get out of it, and the arms out swaddle doesnt work with her because like i said, she uses her hands to keep herself awake.
I assumed it was her 3 week growth spurt, but now im wondering if she doesnt have colic? She doesnt cry for hours at a time, and she WILL go to sleep, but its very difficult to get her to calm down and then she lays here for an hour and cried on and off because she wants out of this damn swaddle. I feel like a failure and im at a total loss of what i need to do to make my baby happy. id love to sit and hold her and look at her all day but my arm is tired and i need to get housework done, and H doesnt realize how demanding it is to take care of her alone all day, so im not getting help from him like i should. HELP me please.
