My little girl is going on 7 weeks old and she has recently (last 4 or 5 days) started a "fussy time" between 7 and 8pm every night. She is a good baby and rarely cries, but during this time she cries uncontrollably and there's nothing I can do to consol her. She pretty much cries herslef to sleep.
I know she is colic and has lots of cramps, but she is receiving acupunctor to help with this. Ever since her first appointment last week she seems to be feeling a lot better. I'm wondering if her fussy time has anything to do with acid reflex? She is a breastfed baby and during her fussy time is during one of her feeding where she eats for a minute then starts crying and continues to try eating and cries again. But she doesn't cry during any other feeding. So is there such a thing as a fussy time and if so, how long does that last for. Any tips on how I could possibly console her?
