My friend's son did that too and she couldn't figure it out until she had a chyropractor appointment herself and her chyropractor told her that a lot of kids who are delivered via C-section (hers was) end up with pinched nerves because vertebras shift when the doctors are pulling on them during the birth. She took her son in and the chyropractor moved some things back in place and her son never cried again.

I had a similar issue with my son just a week ago right after I started back to work. He wasn't sick, didn't want his binkie, wasn't particularly hungry and wasn't acting tired. I don't have a really good answer as to what was going on with him. His grandmother came down to watch him in the middle of the week and decided he was overtired. She is just that good she swaddled him and somehow got him to sleep. He slept for around 4 1/2 hours in the morning along with his normal naps. He was still grumpy the next day but better. Finally, we just enforced his naps as best we could (kept putting him down until he stayed down). The extra rest really seemed to do the trick for my son. I couldn't tell he was that tired but he went from super grumpy back to sweetheart in about three days. There is also a theory out there called disequilibrium (or something like that). The idea is that when your child is developing (including motor skills at an early age) they get very upset until they master the skill. It might be worth some googling. Hope all goes well.

My son was like that when he was a baby he cried and cried all the time everytime I put him down. Found out that he had reflux, colic and ear infections.

The best advice I can give you is too seek medical advice. Check with your midwife, plunket nurse or doctor. It may just be a comfort thing but best to be sure.

All the best.

If it is colic. I have a group called Mom's of Baby's with Colic. Quite a few people have posted suggestions on what they did to combat their baby's colic. I have a few suggestions on there as well.
