She isn’t crying for No reason, you just don’t know it yet.

Does she have plenty of wet/dirty nappies.
What sounds does she make when asleep, is she properly winded, is it a bit better when she sits or feeds upright?
What about temperature could she be too hot or too cold?
If you hold her in a sling or baby carrier is she happy?
Has it always been like this? Could she be teething (a bit early but possible)
I would make an appointment with the GP, but you will have to help them with as much I do as possible.

Shes breastfed so i feed her nursing, we wind her, change and she does have plenty wet and dirty nappys.
At night she dosnt sleep well, shes up wriggling and wont sleep on her own.

Dairy allergy? Common and can manifest in pained crying

If she is wriggling in her sleep, my guess is that she isn’t fully winded. Even BF babies can take ages (voice of experience smile).

Suggestions would be:
If you put her into the cot on her tummy, but knees up. (Similar yo the child’s pose in yoga) and then pat her bum it will help her get the wind out.
Helping her to do bicycling movement, while she is on her back.
Rubbing her tummy with anti clockwise half moon motions.

Avoiding Farty-Foods in your own diet.

At the moment she isnt in her cot, that is another battle on top of the battle with the bottle, i have the most stubborn baby and im the softest person.
Shes currently yogaing on her tummy on .y chest breathing heavy... could that be a sign of anything to be worried about

Breathing heavily but not crying! Sounds lovely.
Once she is asleep I think I would try to pop her in the cot

One way you can usually get them to settle is the tiger in the tree hold. Have a look on YouTube for it smile
