    Default any ideas on what could be causing this?

    my daughter is 3 weeks old and fully breast fed. I've cut out dairy as it seems to upset her belly. she is an. absolute dream baby of a day time, but come night time she wont relax, she feeds for a little then screams she grunt, and will just cry. constantly, she does plenty of big burpies. and its only of a night, starts around 7ish. any ideas?

    Yep, I'd say its the witching hour. Babies tend to need to get all the stimulation of the day out - so they cry & grizzle of an evening till they're pooped & head to bed. DD is not nearly as bad as she was at 3 weeks though, so your DD might get easier to settle even in the witching hour.

    I had my 2nd bub 15 weeks ago now. He cried a lot. Especially at night. I instantly thought colic, reflux, wind issues, etc so changed my diet, bought colic relief products, etc. I stressed! Then my good doc kindly reminded me that this behaviour is normal. Babies simply cry and for a number of reasons. Some are more sensitive than others. He said around the 10 week mark things should start to get better with regards to sleeping. And around the 12 weeks mark, the crying should start to diminish because bubs will have learnt other ways to communicate with you. And you'll start to recognize what bubs cries /needs are.
    Amazingly, he was right. At 10 weeks DS realized day was for up time and night was for sleeping. And now at 15 wks, he barely cries.
    Anyway, if bub does have wind issues, knead her legs like dough into her chest. Do the bicycle, rub her belly clockwise in big circles for large intestines then same direction but smaller circles for small intestines. Burp frequently and up high on your shoulder to create pressure on tummy. Another thing I did for DS at 2 wks old was take him to the chiro. He had put his back out a little after a speedy delivery. After the adjustment, DS fell asleep in my arms and slept sooo much better thereafter.
