This is super normal. My first born was like this for his first 12 weeks. He'd cry and scream like he was in pain, bear down and grunt. When he was really fussy, he'd latch to my breast like he was starving and then let go and arch back away from me. He could cry for hours. Usually 3-7 am were the worst. I promise it will get better. I eliminated dairy from my diet and that seemed to lessen the seedy/curds in his poop. Nurse on demand and when he was fussy I'd lay him face down over my knees (head on one side feet hanging to the other side) and rock my legs back and forth. I also laid him on my lap face-up )head at my knees, hold his feet and bicycle his legs and gently tuck both knees into his chest every few minutes. This seemed to help him pass gas. I wish I had more to help you...the good news is only my first was like this, all my others were very easy to manage
