My 6 week old ds has gone from being a pretty laid back baby, into a constantly crying one, in a matter of days. He's a bit windy and I give him Infacol which doesn't seem to do anything. I don't think he's sick.
He has periods of about 10 minutes when he's calm, but then he screams and is inconsolable for ages. I try everything but he's just so upset.
He's so tired and seems to drop off for a few minutes sometimes, then he screaming again.
I'm getting cabin fever in the house but I tried to take him out in the pram and he screamed so I came home.
A dummy seems to settle him for a bit but I don't want to start relying on a dummy away from bedtime.
Have you tried an infant swing or gentle bouncy chair? He may be a baby that is comforted by motion ... swinging, walking, rocking etc. Also, if a dummy sooths him, let him have it. I swore I'd never use one but my youngest son found it so comforting. I was able to wean him from it at about 16 months without any problems.
