fussy

We are STILL dealing with a VERY fussy baby. It seems like all he is doing is crying and sleeping. We have seriously tried everything. I thought maybe it was gas so we got gas drops. I thought maybe a fever, but no fever. I thought maybe something hurt so we tried ty. no luck. He doesnt want to be held or put on his back. He doesnt want to sit up in his jumparoo. NOTHING. He just want to be crabby and ts starting to make me crabby. I think Josh and I only got about 4 hours of sleep total. He was even crying in his sleep! Any ideas? He still has the poops so I wonder if he has a little virus? We go to the doc on friday so I am hoping we can wait till then otherwise we may be taking a trip back to the er because ive got no clue!!! He does have a stuffy nose, we try sucking it out but very litle comes out. I am trying to get an appoinment at the ENT to see about his adnoids. It sounds like he chokes on his boogers and then coughs and then cries and the more he gets upset, the more this happens.

I just want 1 day of a little less crying and a little more sleeping for the mama!

I so feel your pain about no sleep, I think I'm about 2 weeks behind in sleep. I wish I had some great advice, but I remember when Jax was in the hospital for a long time and was sedated for months on the vent, they come out a different baby. They are cranky, and I don't know how to explain it other than it slowly went away when he was home for a while.

Huge hugs to you- having a fussy lil one can be so trying since you have to 'guess' what's wrong...Dom always cries when he's stuffy, which just makes it worse.Could it be pain? I don't normally give tylenol without symptoms but maybe try that if ok'd by your cardio?..other than that, I've got nothing :( ..praying that this passes quickly and for you to get a little caught up on sleep.

I am praying. I do know that when a little baby goes through such a huge procedure as Malachi that sometimes they have a hard time adjusting once they get back home and all they do is cry and be crabby. It will pass. Our youngest was sick and in the hospital for 26 days and when we got him home he was a little monster and cried constantly. It will get better. I promise.

Do you have a swing? We haven't had to deal with anything like you're describing, but when the kids have been sick and fussy we always could get some sleep by putting them in the swing.

Hi! You don't know me, but I'm a friend of the Tobins. Our babies have been fussy at night when congested so we've had them sleep in their car seats- it keeps their heads elevated for drainage and buckled in they feel secure. It's actually how we've gotten them to sleep 12 hours at night when they are little. We also have a great cheap booger sucker we got online from England. Write me if you want to know more. Hang in there!
