I have a 4 month old daughter and she is sooo fussy all day!! I've tried everything I can think of to try and ease her. I've seemed to have calmed the reflux by giving her a bit of rice cereal in the am, checked to see if she's got gas issues, tryed to get her to take naps thoughtout the day which seems impossible some days.. took her to the doctor, and everything is "normal" they say... I just can't figure out why she is cranky all day! I feel like I am going crazy... is there any one eles out there that feels this way or have any advice?? Would this likley be related to not enough sleep? I can't get her to have a great sleep during the day =(

We got a swing that sat on the floor & played music. We put our daughter in there & played the music when she got cranky & it seemed to calm her down alot.

I was thinking possible ear infection coming on as well.. no, I chose not too put her on meds, I've been managing with a bit of the Neslte Rice Cereal to help the formula stay down. Seems to be working :) I'm willing to try anything at this point, I just can't seem to put my finger on whats bothering her!

It could definitely be from not getting enough sleep, especially if this is a recent development. Since you have taken her to the doctor and they said everything is "normal", then that sort of rules out an ear infection or some other kind of infection. What about teething? Try giving her some Orajel and see if that helps at all. It's not going to hurt her if that's not her problem. Is she on any medication for her reflux?
