Last night my 10 week was in discomfort and screaming from about 8pm until 4am this morning. He had no temperature, but did refuse feeds. I tried changing positions but he wasn't having any of it.
The only thing that soothed him was standing and walking him, he would fall to sleep then as soon as we sat down he would wake and scream! I finally managed to settle him at 4am when i got into bed and he slept on me while i was propped upright in bed. This morning he woke at 8am and seemed fine.
He has taken a feed this morning and is now asleep in his mosses basket.
He has never done this before, do you think he was ill or is it colic? like I said no temperature or vomiting or diarrhea.
(I do have an oversupply issue which I am trying unsuccessfully to sort out)

Could just be a one off, if he wasn't ill at all. Morelikly colic.

My first did this once for one night, never found out what caused it and was so glad that although she had reflux she never had proper colic as this is what it is like apparently.
