Whingy baby

I posted a few months back about having a whingy baby. Well I put that down to colic. She's now 4 months and 2 weeks and is still the same. I've tried alsorts with her. When she wakes on a morning I give her a bottle then we get about half hr to an hour worth of smiles out of her then the whinging starts and it's like that all day. She still has one feed through the night and feeds every 3/4 hours through the day taking almost 6oz at a time. Any advice? Thanks

Feeding sounds normal. When she is whinging what is she doing? Does she stops when she is held and you sing to her?

What are her naps like? What time is she waking up?

She's not too bad when we have hold of her but as you can probably understand that's not do-able all day as I have a 3 year old nearly. She tends to cat nap. Her brother sometimes wakes her up. She starts to get cranky after being awake for an hour n half x

Babies are awake for a very short time in the morning before they need their first sleep. If she only cat naps they she maybe tired.

If she is happy when held then it maybe that she just needs to be held. Have you tried a sling?
