My son had colic and is just now getting over it. He would cry all of the time due to his sensitive digestive system. When they are that young, they may have an underdeveloped digestive system. Have you tried the 5 S's? The Happiest Baby on the Block book recommends the 5 S's; Swaddle, Side laying in arms, Shushing or white noise to simulate womb sounds, swaying while holding and sucking. All of these together soothed my baby everytime. Swaddling is the major help. Also, try taking your baby's legs and gently pressing them towards his/her belly and holding for a count to five then releasing. Your baby may need help passing gas. Finally, look up the Dunstan Baby Language or the Baby Ears app. Believe it or not, babies have their own language from 0-3 months and if you know what to listen for, you may be able to pick up in what your baby is trying to tell you. All of the above plus chiropractor visits for my don at 6 weeks worked for me. We were trying to rule out any misalignment ir pinched nerves as he was breech and born via c-section. Some chiropractors are flexible with payment if your insurance doesn't cover.Trust me, I know how frustrating and helpless you feel. Hang in there.

I am an OB nurse and we always educate our parents about a time when babies are fussy for no apparent reason. It's called the period of purple crying you should look it up. Also my baby is 8weeks old and I have finally figured out that most of the time when he is fussy after he's been fed and changed its because he's tired. When he's overly tired it takes him longer to shut down. At 3 weeks your little one should still be sleeping most of the time with brief periods of quiet alert time.

Ok, that's probably part of the problem. I went through the whole formula shelf at the supermarket, I think, trying to find one that worked with my LO's gut.

It's trying, it's frustrating, and it seems like you'll never see the end, some days. The key is that you need to keep trying until you find one that she can keep down, AND that is gentle on her gastrointestinal tract.

For my guys, it was a soy based formula. But, that was 17 & 20 years ago, so I'm sure that formula has improved since. Keep trying. You will find one that works best for her needs.

Ok, well, what are you feeding? Breast? Formula? Combo of both?

Formula fed babies will tend to have more gastrointestinal distress until you find the formula that works best with their tummies...

If she's 3 weeks, it could be hunger, it could be discomfort, it could be any number of things.

If you've checked the main issues: Hungry, diaper, hot/cold, and those are all ok, then she wants interaction.

How old is she?Could it be that she is teething and is fussy because she has pain?
