Yeah if your saying its just at night from those certain time frames colic wud b my guess, unfortantly. Try changing her formula to a PRObiotic one thats partially hydrolyzed, for example gerber soothe and see if that helps. My son would scream anywhere from 3/4 in the afternoon till 12 or later every single night. I would take him for late night walks in his stroller that would sometimes help or get a baby sling and walk around the house with the vaccum if she likes that sound or medium loud calming music. I feel awful for you because i understand how tiring and bad it makes you feel as a mom, almost like your helpless. Also try moving her legs in a bicycle motion or putting her on ur legs face down. Also rubbing her back and stomach in a circular motion may help relieve her.

If she is crying at night from certain time frames everynight is sounds like she is colic. I went through this with my son. Try different colic medicines, the homeopathic ones seem to work the best. Also try putting gas drops in every single bottle if bottle feed. My son would cry 8/10 hrs a night. I ended up stopping breastfeeding and switching him to formula which seemed to help some and got him the dr browns bottles which helped ease his stomach. Around 6 mnths I took him to an allergist and found out hes allergic to soy, wheat, cowsmilk, eggs and nuts and now know the causes of his extreme discomfort. Hes now 11 mnths and on soothe formula and doing wonderful. So my suggestions to you are talking to her dr about switching formulas if formula feed or watching what you eat and her reactions if ur bfing. Also try a bottle that stops the air from going in tgeir stomach and and the colic medicines. Good luck hun. I know how horrible and stressful this can be.

Have you tried holding her on your chest so she can hear your heart beating? taking for a walk in pram? Drive in the car?
