My DD is 5 weeks old and if she is awake she is crying. It started the past week and hoping its just a stage. She is very gassy and I have gas medicine and got some colic medicine. That did seen to help last night. I am breastfeeding and she will be eating just fine and then start screaming but act like she still wants it. Is anyone else going through this??

It could be that the baby is suffering from COLIC...Just carry her and love her and hold her as much as possible. Babies with COLIC needs a lot of attention as well as love. A baby that has COLIC will usually cry and cry til after the third month...I know...you want the cries to stop now; however, if you can't deal with the crying take a fifteen minute break for yourself...Take a nice shower; hot showers usually breaks some tensions you may have...I know how it feels to have a COLIC baby...God bless her and don't worry, she will be just fine.
