So my precious baby boy has been a cranky baby since day one and I'm not sure why. Seems he's only content when sleeping or when I or someone else is holding him, but I get absolutely nothing done around the house! I'm lucky to get a cup of tea or use the bathroom! I bought 3 different slings and he hates them all and he isn't fond of the swing or car seat! I'm out of ideas and very stressed by the end of the day. I have googled everything and alot of people say to let him cry it out, but I don't feel comfortable doing that! I have let him cry for 3-5 minutes a few times when I had all the bases covered like pamper changed, fed and burped but he gets to a point of screaming and gagging because he is so upset...so of course I went running and picked him up! I can't handle to let him cry that way...hes just too young and it breaks my heart! I don't have alot of support because my husband works all the time and my family lives out of state. He also spits up ALOT after feedings...I think my milk comes out too fast! I tried bottles and he still spits up but not quite as badly. He has his month check up tomorrow morning so I will be bringing this up to my Pediatrician. I've tried gripe water and Mylicon drops. Hmmmm....any ideas of what I can try?
