Okay, I have been dealing with this for 7 months now. This has been an ongoing issue and I think I'm finally ready to crack. DS2 has been crying constantly since he was 4 days old. He is the most unhappy baby in Australia! DS1 was the happiest baby, you could put him anywhere and get everything done. So imagine my shock when DS2 is completely the opposite.
We changed formulas. We went to hospital twice. We got losec for reflux. After what seemed like constant dead ends we gave up and just admitted to the likely fact that he is just a really clingy baby.
7 months on and although age has definitely made a difference. He still cries 80% of the time. The only time he won't be crying is if I am holding him. If I step away to get something done he will scream the house down. He has the LOUDEST scream of any baby I have heard. I never get anything around the house done. He still wakes up 3 times a night, so Im constantly sleep deprived also.
I'm not so much looking for tips with this post (as everything I have tried up until now has done squat). I am basically after reassurance that your little screaming terrors eventually stopped also!
