Crying baby... 7 1/2 months

I have a little boys 7 and a half months and he has been crying all day and night on and off. I checked his temp its normal, he has eaten normally, I checked to see if teeth were braking through and his gums seem normal and you feel no teeth.The things that normally make him happy are not working. I don't know what else it could be!

:( Thats terrible!! Like others said, it could be gas. My 6 1/2 mont old woke up the other ngiht SCREAMING.. it was gas.. MYLICON from walmart or anywhere works wonders !!! I highly recomend it! You can put it in each bottle to prevent bubbles, or just as he needs it! I would try that and maybe orajel just to see!

poor bubby..those night/days are horrific and exhausting!I have a 8mnth old who too had a week like that mainly grizzly during the day but hard to settle once she woke at night.i blame teething too..Taylas tooth had cut through no drama!but i think after a few weeks it may have been uncomfortable :S its hard not knowing whats wrong when they cant just tell u!! If the cry's really different than the normal cry or he seems in pain id get him checked out just to be safe :)..probably nothing tho.

Sounds like he could be teething..even though you don't feel/see anything, doesn't mean a tooth isn't working it's way through.

sounds like he's got the colic... usually they will get super gassy and it makes their tummys hurt... try "colic tablets" u can find them at health food stores and they disolve instantly on their tongues or in a bottle. they saved my life when my boy was little... he has acid reflux...
