Still Not Sleeping

jb - February 28

I fed 3oz of formula to my baby and then let her latch on to my br___t for about 10 minutes to soothe her and to "top off" her meal. (I just started doing this so I know there is still plenty of mike in me) I am sure she had enough to eat. I also changed her diaper. She still insists on screaming her little head off. What am I missing? I also gave her the gas drops, so I have that angle covered too. This has been going on for 2 days now. She is 2 1/2 weeks old.

Hmm..I dont know jb. Maybe she is really tired. My little girl gets fussy and fights going to sleep when she is tired. It could be gas also, sometimes the drops take a while to work. I would just try to sooth her and maybe she will fall asleep. I know, easier said than done. If you are up around 3-4am think of me- I will be up to feeding my little one and trying to get her to go back down for a few more hours.

My daughter used to frustrate me so much with this. SHe wanted to bf all of the time, and not always because she was hungry. Some kids like to "cluster feed". Because their tummies are developing and learning how to digest food, they want to snack all of the time. I found my daughter was like this every evening for about 4 weeks. Then all of a sudden, she stopped, and started feeding normally again. There is a great website called kellymom.com which has all different questions and answers in regards to bf, colic and everything in between .

my son did that for 3 days in a row. he stopped now but i felt like there was nothing i could do to fix it and it made me really sad. I felt like a bad mom because i couldn't make him happy. one thing i found that helped a little was his bouncer. the vibrations calmed him down, and hed stop screaming long enough for me to regroup and stop crying.

The only way Ameya sleeps well is if she has a bath before bed and then is wrapped up tight and then has a good feed. Try having a bath before bed to rlax you're little one.
