moany 9 week old
My 9 week old baby girl is constantly moaning and crying and there seems to be no reason at all. She's fed, changed and winded. She cries when I put her down and when she's in my arms so I'm fighting a losing battle. She doesn't like her playmate and gym, her swing chair nothing! I don't know what else I can really do to soothe her. The funny thing is she's only like this at home when we're out at relatives etc she's so content almost like a completely different baby so when I tell people she's constantly crying they find it hard to believe. Anyone else going through the same thing???
Ha my 8 week old is amazing when we r out and with other people. When we r home alone in the day she does the same thing...nothing pleases/soothes her and I run out of ideas!
the thing I mainly rely on is getting her to sleep...ill go for walk or drive. Then shes better when she wakes. its always my plan b...get to her sleep anyway possible lol
Thank you for reply I was beginning to think I was alone lol. I take my baby for daily walks and she loves it, however the walk doesn't guarantee me that she'll fall asleep so once we're back indoors I'm back to square one. I know I'm not doing anything wrong it's just a little upsetting not being able to settle her. I'll keep trying different things somethings bound to work. Xx
Have you tried swaddling her cocoarise? That really helped to calm my son out of a tizzy when he was that little.
Try taking a look at 'the happiest baby on the block' 5 s's techniques... a combo of those can be pretty effective with a lot of babies... Hope it helps you... I know how tough those early weeks can be!
Thank you for your reply
I have tried swaddling her and she doesn't seem to like it very much which is strange because I know most babies like that tight feeling of being back in the womb, then again she doesn't really like blankets she kicks them off of or skirms out of them.
I will most definitely look at your recommendation though and see if any of those 5 techniques work. Fingers crossed!
