My son did the same until I discovered it was really bad colic. Perhaps he needs to be burped..several times. The pain is awful for the little ones. Many times I just had to find the right position for him. It was usually flat on tummy across both legs with a back massage and gentle patting. He's now 30 yrs old and I now have 5 grandkids, so I'm experienced in all sorts of maladies!

Im sorry you are going through this. My oldest daughter did the same thing. The best thing I can say is to put a pillow over your ears. He has learned if he screams loud enough and long enough you will come running. If you know he isn't hungry, dirty or sick...let him cry it out. It may take a week, maybe even 2, but he will learn to calm himself down. Keep your head up...it wont last forever.

"toddler taming" is a good book. I got one on amazon for 1cent and just paid shippng. It addresses your issue and apparently the plan is 100% effective. I haven't tried it though myself so am not speaing from personal experience.
