My DD is 16 weeks old now. She's always been very cranky. And recently she has been especially cranky. It does not matter what we do she fusses and then crys the whole time! It is driving me mad! I am a stay at home mom but I have other things to do such a cleaning, cooking, and caring for our pup. She hates the swing. As soon as I out her in it it is instant crying. Even with the mobile going and swinging and the music (I have tried a combo of just 1 to all 3 things). It's the same with the activity mat and rock'n play.
I literally have to looking at her and talking to her every second she's awake and even then she sometimes still crys.
I've also tried just laying her down in her room to play quietly in case of over stimulation. I have spoke with her pediatrician several times to which she has diagnosed colic and reflux but even with medicine (for reflux) she is still so cranky!
Has anyone else had a very cranky baby in general? And what have you done to help? What toys and items do your babies enjoy?
