From Day 2 our son has cried. And cried. And cried some more. What was labeled as colic and was supposed to go away at 3-4 months stretched out to almost 8 months. After we got some minor breaks in the crying for a little laughter and some firsts but mostly crying. He cries when going to bed and cries when waking up (5 out of 7 days a week). Health wise he has been checked out thoroughly and we have even had several rounds of blood work done to check everything. For 7 months he refused to soothe with anything except a bottle and we finally got him to take a pacifier and we were so relieved! He mostly sleeps through the night so that isn't a huge issue its just Constant fussy/grumpy allllllll the time when he is awake. It's gotten to the point it is driving my husband bonkers because he thinks he will never be happy and is pretty much refusing to consider having another baby for fear it will be the same. I wear him, breast fed him, have always been as loving as possible but it wears on us so bad! That being said I love him more than anything and the brief shining moments are so amazing. I know this too shall pass... But when??? The best description I have of him is where Dr. Sears explains the high need baby/child.
Anyone else out there have a child like this? Is there a light at the end of the tunnel where they mellow out a bit? Tia
