My 5 week old son will start to be fussy in the early mornings, starting around 4 am and then will start to all out scream loudly for about an hour. Sometimes its even in the afternoon. He wont eat, and if he does take the bottle he still cries, i try his swing, bouncer, holding him, walking him around the house, putting him on his belly over my knees, everything even gripe water. It is so stressful! I have no idea what to do anymore. Any ideas what it is? or what to do?

Thank you. His doctor upped his formula meaning he has more scoops then what it normally says to put in to gain weight. So maybe that could be why too.

He's probably gassy. Try moving his legs in a bicycle motion. Burp him after every oz he drinks. Hold him in a sitting position and massage his sides. My 3 month old is like that. It could be the formula he's on too. Maybe try switching him to something that is a bit easier to digest. Powdered formulas are harder to digest, if your using that, maybe try a liquid concentrate?
