After the initial honeymoon period (the first week or so) I noticed my DS getting progressively more fussy. Since I don't really know how much fussyness is normal I am wondering if this could be colic. He is 1 month old tomorrow and I would say it started getting worse in the last 2 weeks. It's particularly bad in the afternoon/early evening. He cries after eating and so I try changing his diaper, rocking him, swaddling, holding, bouncy seat, etc. Nothing seems to calm him. Frequently I end up trying to feed again. I thought maybe it was a growth spurt because he seems fussy/hungry? every 1-2 hours. Last night was terrible with him waking every 1.5-2 hours. Sometimes feeding works and other times it doesn't. My husband lost his temper with me yesterday because I went out for an hr to the grocery store and when I came home all the pumped milk I had left was gone and I had even fed him before leaving. My husband insisted he was still hungry but I thought maybe something else was wrong and since he was bright red in the face and looked really uncomfortable and felt hot I asked for the thermomenter. DH was pissed because he thought I just needed to feed him and was irritated I didn't listen to/trust him. The temp was normal so I tried feeding and it calmed him down a bit so maybe Dh was right after all. Our pediatrician says he seems to have bit of reflux so we always try to burp well and keep him elevated after feedings but sometimes he just seems inconsolable. Is this normal newborn crying or colic. I read that overfeeding can make it work and also that the redness in the face and bringing the legs in and stretching them out are signs. He has both those. I am going to ask the dr at his checkup on friday but I was just wondering if anyone had experience with colic and could tell me their babies signs/symptoms and what helped.
