My ds2 had colic and by 12 weeks he was a different baby so fingers crossed you don't have long left!! The other thing that it could be though is more of a separation anxiety. My ds would scream as soon as I left the room at that age and also had to be held al the time. He wouldn't spend more than 5 mins in his pram before crying and I always had to be in sight at home.
I think it's just age related though as he's fine now at 6 months. He loves attention and cuddles but he doesn't need to see me all the time.
I have a swing but didn't have batteries. Got some now. He's asleep in his vibrating bouncer right now from the car ride. Will try the swing later on. 😊
Just got some batteries for our swing, will try it later. He's currently dozing in his vibrating bouncer after the car ride put him to sleep
The swing is magic! 👐
I have been following your posts. Lol. Like a stalker. I don't have much advices because I am in the same shoes. Worse because DS doesn't sleep in sling, carrier, swing etc. even in my arms, he won't stay asleep. Hr cries the moment he opens his eyes. I haven't gotten out of the house for a very long time since my mom left. No one can give me advices on the formula. CHN, paed, GP. Feel so frustrating. Any reason aptamil is suggested?
I'm glad she was my first, dd2 is an angel in comparison, I had braced myself for another 4 months of hell lol. It must be such a shock the other way around- easy baby then hard!
It did end though, by 4 months. You're almost there......then they turn into demon toddlers before you know it!
He slept in the swing for a bit, woke up briefly now dozing again.
I feel like he's going to get good and then I'll be back at work.
Ds1 was so enjoyable at this age. I'm so sad ds2 is having such a hard time.
I'm trying to take it one day at a time but sometimes they all melt into one and it feels never ending. I will stay optimistic as best i can!!
Edit: he's awake and whinging. Sigh. 😒

@bbhope , i think she recommended aptamil because it has prebiotics in it to help with tummy issues. I was looking at thr new aptamil profutura one which had prebiotics and probiotics. Don't want to switch again though. I'll see how he goes over the next few weeks. I picked up 2 tins of aptamil gold +1 at big w yesterday so i at least want to use those and give his tummy time to get used to this one. It's so hard to find where i live though, always sold out.
