My little boy is now a month old and pretty much since birth his been crying loads, to the point where he makes himself cough,hot and goes red in the face because his crying so hard, we've tried everything to changing him,swaddling,bottle,playing ect and nothing works. We use doctor brown bottles to reduce colic and gripe water when he has it. He fights going to sleep all the time, crys because his tired and proper kicks his legs and throws his arms about all the time, but won't go to sleep, then when we get him to sleep its only till we put him down then his wide awake crying again or he only sleeps for half hour or so at a time. He hardly ever goes to sleep after a bottle, it can be between 1 and 2 hours or he even stays awake till his next feed then he might go to sleep.Also sometimes he crys for a bottle so we give him one then he spits it out or pushes it out with his hand then screams. It's got to the point where I don't get time to eat or do the house work cause he wont settle.
His on sma 5oz every 3-4 hours
