    So far,Lola-Rose was pretty much sleeping throughout the night perfectly,waking up only once for a feed and she hardly ever cried.

    Well,ladies,I have only now put her to sleep after not sleeping for 12 hours! She cried so much! For 2-3 hours straight and then she'd stop,I'm put her to sleep and she'd start again!
    She usually loves the bottle,now she fed for 5 minutes and done!
    Needless to say,I've never heard her cry so much,it made me so upset :cry:

    Whats going on? Any advice on how can I soothe her?
    I haven't slept or eaten anything in ages!

    she perhaps has wind hun.

    is she clenching her fists and bringing her knees up? if so, if could be wind. my little boy suffers from terrible wind, it is really upsetting to see him in so much pain. winding and feeding takes ages! by the time i have finished winding him he is due his next bottle!!!!

    :hug:

    hope you both feel better soon.

    I haven't noticed her bringing her knees up but she is clenching her fists!
    And yes,it takes ages to get her to start latch on the bottle and when she does,she's done after 5 minutes! :hissy:

    When was the last time she did a poo? Is she straining?

    Or maybe she is just having a fussy day!

    I changed her diaper about three hours ago,nothing unusual there (it wasn't hard or anything)...
    Could she be colicky?

    She could just be having an off day, Hannah has this sometimes even now. If it is trapped wind or an upset stomach it might help her if you put her against you (stomach lying against you)--sometimes the pressure and the heat helps. Also you can move her legs in a bicycle pattern while she's laying flat on the ground (if it's gas) and it might help her relieve herself.

    Could be the first big growth spurt. Usually hits around 10+ days.

    Aww, sweetie, hope Lola-Rose settles for you. I am thinking that she is gassy and may be causing her to be fussy and unsettled.

    :hugs:

    Well,she slept for about 4 hours,the woke up again and cried more.I massaged her tummy,it seemed to be doing the trick but as soon as I'd stop she'd start crying again,so I called the nurse in the postnatal department in my pedi office and she told me that it's likely colic and that she'll be around tomorrow to check it...
    I'm trying to soothe her till then...she's really eating poorly too...:cry:
