My son is 6 months old and all hes done lately is cry for hours and hours. Nothing works to get him to stop. Ive tried gripe water, Teething tablets, a warm bath, walking him around, feeding him more, singing to him, trying to get him to laugh and nothing has been working and Im so frustrated with him. Dont get me wrong I love my son with all I have but this crying is too much! Im at a loss and dont know what to do. I get so frustrated that Ive yelled at him and on one occasion I even put my hand on his mouth to get him to stop ( not to hurt him in any means just to end his loud screaming)(and yes I do know that that is completely unacceptible and it will never happen again) How do other mothers handle this? Is feeling this way normal? What should I do?
