Incredibly fussy 6 week old

It seems that almost overnight our baby boy went from being a fairly happy (he has his fussy moments) baby. I've heard that there is a 6-8 week "hump" where fussiness is at its worst. Does this happen overnight?

Also, he doesn't take naps during the day (I have tried everything!) which contributes to his fussiness. Does anyone have any advice on getting him to take naps so that his fussiness might be reduced during the day? I am REALLY getting tired of getting yelled and cried at all day long!

Nope. He's a newborn. Completely normal. And yep, they do turn on you pretty much overnight. Is he pulling his legs up after eating? Does he spit up a lot? Do you have a swing? That's what I used to put my daughter in and that's where she slept. Otherwise NO ONE slept!
