Help Wanted.

My mother isn’t answering her phone. And I need assistance.

How likely is it for a 3-month-old to develop an allergy to his HYPOALLERGENIC formula?! Because something is wrong with my kid. I have checked for teeth. He isn’t sick. No fever. 

But the screaming … the screaming. It’s killing me, people. There has to be a reason for it. His colic was so much better, and now – BAM – it’s back. I think. I’m unsure of what is causing the crying, all I know is that when he gets tired he gets really super mad and swaddling only pisses him off. He doesn’t want his paci, he doesn’t want me to cuddle him, he hates his swing, laying him down to let him work his issues out on his own does NOT work, he’s scratching the ever-loving meat off his scalp with his itty bitty fingernails and I just don’t know what to do.

Whew. 

We have tried gas drops. I am very tired of carrying my 13-pound infant around all day in my Ergo. I know that sounds bad, but I’m TIRED. Tired of hearing screaming, tired of carrying, tired of wondering when it’s going to end. I realize it may not end anytime soon. Just because he’s three months does not mean the crying will magically cease.

I just really hoped that it would.

  1. Lindy, I may have to try that! I finally determined that if he sleeps on his tummy he is happy and sleeps for a really long time, so we'll see!

    I don't think he's sick. No fever, no pulling on ears, etc. I really think he might have developed a milk allergy??? It's so hard to know what is going on with the little guy!

  2. Good luck! It's so hard when they can't talk…but now that my 2 1/2 yr old talks NON STOP there are many a days when I wonder what on earth I was wishing for when I wante her to talk so badly. 🙂
