My daughter doesnt ever ever stop crying except when shes sleeping. She just forces it out all day... it makes no sense! Ive tried EVERYTHING! She has all the sleep/food/toys/attention she could ever possibly require but is just never satisfied and there is nothing medically wrong. Does anybody else have this problem or even better can anybody tell me how to fix it? Its INTENSE... she used to be so content just up until a few months ago...

Aww poor little thing. Yeah -35 is a bit cold to go out. Maybe something fun to do indoors? Which I'm sure you've tried....

Some children are just overly sensitive to everything. Clothes, temperature, lighting, noise, anything. The best advice I can give (having gone through similar issues with my daughter) is try to stay calm. Go to her as soon as you can when she starts crying (this actually helps them cry less), after you have checked to make sure everything is okay, walk away. It is okay to tune her out for a little while if you have done all you can. Get someone to watch her for awhile if it is getting to you. Since she was content before, see if anything has changed lately that could have thrown her off. It may very well be the walks she was used to. Maybe you could bundle up and take a few minutes to just walk outside and see if it helps.

Shes already got her molars and checking all her joints was one of the first things the doctor did! Im at a loss :( Im kind of thinking shes frusterated we cant go for walks anymore lately and were just in the house a lot so shes bored? and therefor pissed right off lol but its been like -35 c most days and definitely way too cold to go out! I just wish I could fix it somehow...

Teething? 2 year molars?



Edit add: Are you sure nothing is broken? IE: Collarbone, her arm out of socket, anything like that?



I had a friend who's daughter did the same thing and they found out her arm was out of socket. It's totally normal for it to happen, and very easy to do. It can be done by merely dressing them.



I'm not there with your daughter so I don't know exactly how much she's crying. But it may be something to look into if the doctor's haven't already.
