... Also a copy of the book "The Happiest Baby on the Block". They really should give a copy at the hospital to all new parents. This book saved us from insanity. The tricks in there really help a lot. ... (10 replies)
... feed every 2 hours during the day because she was only 6 lbs 14 oz. At her first exam she was not gaining the wait she needed. They also recommend not allwoing a newborn to go more then 4 hours without a feeding and during the day she would sometimes sleep this long. ... (10 replies)
... P.M. she seems to start crying and seems uncomfortable. I've tried everything from feedings, diaper changes, swing, holding, burping, vibrating chair etc. ... (10 replies)

... I am breastfeeding. My diet has been pretty regular. Just the norm, but I will keep my eye on it. I do swaddle though. She likes it for a while and then kicks her legs around and unswaddles herself. I did hear about that book The happiest baby. Thanks for the the advise. I will make sure I get a copy of it. I just hate seeing my little one in such discomfort at night. She does... (10 replies)
... There are these swaddling things you can buy on the internet. I have never seen them in stores. I got one for our DD. It's basically a weird shaped blanket that has a pocket for the feet/ legs. Then you wrap the blanket around several times. It actually wraps their arms too. It snuggles them so nice! It worked pretty well for us until Grace was strong enough to undo... (10 replies)
... I also can't express how much the swaddle can do. My son was so fussy and would never sleep - until we got a miracle blanket! He slept swaddled for 4 months. It was a life saver! (10 replies)
... The Kiddopotamus Swaddle Blankets (babies r us or amazon) were a life saver for us. Along with a white noise machine. I would ask your dr. about allowing her to take longer naps as well. 11 days old is so young that it may be easier if you allow her to 'make' her own schedule but still be careful to keep her days and nights seperate by having her nap in natural light during...

... Are you drinking milk or eating a lot of dairy? That can cause gassiness in babies. So can onions, broccoli, some sauces, citrus juices, eggs. In the beginning I had to eat very PLAIN foods...chicken, rice, potatoes, etc. I second the foremilk/hindmilk thing too. I would feed my son on one side, burp him and then put him back on the same side again to get the thicker... (10 replies)
... is there any particular reason you are waking her for feedings? most doctors (and mothers) recommend letting your baby set their own feeding schedule. every two hours seems like a bit much, which could be the reason for the gas/colicky behavior by the end of the day. it could also be a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance, where baby is getting too much sugary foremilk and not...

... I would say don't wake her every 2 hours. Try to wake her every three during the day. Definately swaddle! Learn how to do it properly though or else it wont work!!! (10 replies)
... Are you breastfeeding? It may be something in your diet that is bothering her. If you are BF, think about what you are eating about 4 hours prior to her fussy period. (10 replies)
... I know I should go to another doctor to get a second oppinion, but have not had the time or energy to do so... We are going on our 3rd night of no sleep... ... (11 replies)
... walk out and usually he falls to sleep on his own. If he cries, I let him cry for a few minutes before going back into his room. He normally falls asleep before crying now. ... (14 replies)
... Oh yes, putting the baby down and the crying! Happened to me as well, and there I was sleeping on the couch at night with my son on me. It was the longest week. I then discovered the swaddle. Try swaddling your daughter very tightly. ... (6 replies)
... Nope...She slept well Friday night. She was up quite a bit Saturday, but I was sick, so DH took her monitor into the other room and got her all night. Last night was the night that broke the camels back. ... (12 replies)
... Please don't feel bad at all--I mean, I don't understand why he was so mad--he should have been relieved that it wasn't anything serious. Would he have felt better if it was? Like I said before, better safe than never feel guilty about being worried about your little one. What if in the future there is something really wrong, but you ignore her because you are...

... The next few days were a little better, so I stopped worrying so much. But for the past three days, I've had to hold and nurse her all day. She won't let me put her down for anything. At night I try to slip her into her crib when she finally falls asleep, and she's awake 5 minutes later crying. ... (18 replies)
... So... let me tell you about my horrible night last night. ... (18 replies)
... My 6 day old daughter won't sleep on her back at night. From 11pm to 5am, any time she is put on her back, she wakes right up, even out of a sound sleep. This means someone has to be holding her in order for her to sleep during those 6 hours, obviously a huge problem. Here's how it goes: She's 100% breastfed by Mom, and having no problems with that. At 11, she'll get... (4 replies)

... I cannot stress enough how much of a difference it makes. Our first two were born during the tummy sleeping era. It was foreign to me to hear of young infants crying themselves to sleep. ... (18 replies)
