My youngest is 2.5 weeks old. He has started crying pretty intensely primarily at night. There is some during other parts of the day but not consistently. My oldest two never had colic and I honestly don't really know what it is or the symptoms of it. All I know from hearing portions of stories from friends is that the baby fusses a lot and the parents go sleepless. I'm not sleepless but definitely sleep deprived. It seems to me though that he is just constipated. His bowel movements have been less frequent but his food intake has increased. Any opinions or advice on how to handle this would be GREATLY appreciated. I feel like I'm losing my mind here. This morning I had to lay him down and walk away ... he screamed for nearly an hour while I sat nearby and cried the whole time. I hated this ... made me feel like a horrible mom. I've never been here and don't like feeling like I can't take care of him or soothe his pain. Does anyone have any information on babies with colic? Please help!
