My baby was 5 months old and he was extremely colicky. I used babies magic tea and then I became a relieved mother otherwise, I was losing my mind due to terrible nightmares with crying baby.

If your child is teething a lot of the times they won't take a normal teether. However, I've never seen one turn down a feeder bag with cold fruit in it. You can buy them at Walmart and they're a little mesh sack that you can put ANYTHING in.

My son was partial to really cold, almost frozen strawberries that he could chew on. My niece enjoyed frozen bananas. For your little guy, I'd put some frozen formula or breast milk cubes in because he's a tad too young for the other stuff.

Hopefully this will help! when my little guy was 3 months he started crying all the time too and so did my nephew, turns out they have acid reflux. they are both on ranitidine now which is like zantac for babies and its like night and day with them, compleletly different babies! If your baby has any of these symptoms he might have acid reflux, you should defently go see your Dr. Not only will your baby feel better you will to!

Here are some of the Symptoms of Acid Reflux in Infants.


•Frequent spitting up or vomiting

•Irritability when feeding

•Refusing food or eating only small amounts

•Sudden or constant crying

•Arching the back while feeding

•"Wet" burps

•Frequent hiccups

•Frequent coughing

•Poor sleep habits with frequent waking

•Bad breath

A small number of infants will experience the following less common symptoms:

•Difficulty swallowing

•Frequent sore throat

•Weight loss or poor weight gain

•Respiratory problems (such as asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, wheezing)

•Frequent ear or sinus infections

•Excessive drooling

•Hoarse voice

•Spells of not breathing

umm.. sweety if your baby is 4 months old and seems to be crying all the time Try giving him baby tylonal or a cold teething ring.. I'll bet you anything his gums are driving him insane... infant tylonal should help with the pain... if he seems overly gassy try Oval and whatever you do don't forget to BURP HIM... my husband always forgets and I get left with a crabby baby Even after a solids feeding remember they still need to be burped.

I have never heard of babies having colic after 3 months, but then I am not a doctor. Are you having problems with your 4 month old crying all the time?
