I'm a new mum and have a very unsettled baby. Jye was born 13th of june and he cries almost constantly. we've tried feeding him (he will down 150mls of pumped breastmilk every 2-3 hours no problem), burping him (he burps easily at half way and at the end of feeds), holding him (seems to put him to sleep as long as u pace with him but as soon as u put him down he wakes), entertaining him (he has the attention span of an ADD child lol i dont know if thats normal for most newborns), laying him on a blanket with us in the lounge room, puting him in his bouncer.. there have even been times where we have let him cry in his cot because we are lost for things to do and both of us are getting upset.. Daddy is busy with work and such in the morning so i have to fend for myself. I cannot pace the house with him because i have back spasms for no apparent reason and can only carry him for a minute at a time b4 i back starts to hurt majorly. i have a physio appointment in july but it upsets me that i cant calm my own son down. does anyone have any suggestions as to why he may be unsettled so often. he sleeps fairly well at night.
