Hi I have a 4 week old who seems to love sleeping during the days but at night turns into the devil! Anywhere after 10pm he will start screaming which can last anywhere from 1 hr to 5 hrs! Im BF him but having a feed doesn't always soothe him, neither does changing a nappy or trying to rid him of any trapped wind! The HV said last week that he was going through the 3 week growth spurt but although the days are a bit better the nights are still shocking! His screams were so bad last night that my partner rang 111 as we are worried that there is something seriously wrong that neither of us can settle him! To top things off he seems to be throwing up a couple of times a day but not sure what the cause is!
Does anyone have any ideas/advice that has worked for them??

Babies take comfort from feeling tightly secure, like in the womb. A swaddle recreates this. Have you tried a swaddle?

Babies also naturally take comfort from sucking, which is the reason dummies are amazing. Have you tried a dummy?
