Babies: 3 - 6 Months

Inconsolable Baby

So I'm not quite sure what is going with my son who is almost 15 weeks now. I need some help from you ladies! I caught a cold and my son got it from me. I kept him upright to avoid laying him on his back to decrease the stuffiness. He began to puke and my doctor said to go on pedialyte. That helped and his spitting up is back to normal. But for the past few days he has been so fussy! He will scream and be inconsolable. He used to wake up every 3-4 hours at night and since he got the cold, he falls asleep at 8pm and wakes up at 4am, 6am, then is awake at 8am roughly. So he will scream throughout the day until he falls asleep. Once he falls asleep, he crashes. There have been a couple times where he refuses to eat from the breast and from a pumped bottle. Any ideas??

  • Does he still sound congested? Congested babies have a terrible time trying to eat and often wil not eat enough and awaken more frequently because of this. Try some saline nasal spray and a nose frieda. Baby will hate having it done but will quickly c

  • Is he arching his back or acting like he's in pain at all? We ended up switching our LO to soy formula because she would scream inconsolably (mostly in the evenings) and arch her back like she was in pain. We also used Colic Calm and that stuff worked
