Fussy 4 day old

My little boy is 4 days old. He breastfeeding like a champ but is fussy most of the time off the breast. He has not pooped in a day and a half. Has plenty of wet diapers. Very gassy. It is so sad not being able to help him when he's screaming. Any suggestions?

  • I agree that it sounds like a normal 4 day old.  Swaddle tight, hang in there and keep doing what your doing.  He will most likely settle in soon.  He's had a very eventful few days!!
