Evening Fussiness!

Mamas!

We are experiencing some week 3 evening fussiness over here! We've read many things about gas, cluster feeding, being over stimulated, etc.. But goodness is it hard to sort out! Do you have any tips or advice on what you did to help figure things out? Tonight we think it was gas.. The gripe water helped and then we heard major noise in his tummy and diaper.. Before that I tried feeding him again, much sooner than normal.. But then we also never know if it's too much noise, etc.. But we try to dim the lights and night and turn the TV way down.. Just all so confusing! Did you ever feel like.. Goodness, I wish they could just tell me what they need! :)

        My lil Anthony likes to be rocked and patted on his back... also the bicycle thing works great!! He passes lots of gas when we do that :D So now its a daily exercise that we do :) Along with his tummy time! When hes overtired he gets SUPER fussy and starts moving his head from side to side (wont hold still for his feeding! lol) but like Stacey said... Find that combination and you will be just fine! Im on month to with my second lil one and all in all hes a pretty darn good baby! I love him soo much! Oh and my first one is 7 yrs now and he just learnd how to change wet diapers! WOOHOO!! lol Hes really good (with supervision of coarse) but he is very helpful and a great big brother...oh and believe it or not...sometimes when Anthony gets fussy If he sees Jaiden then he calms down and starts cooing at him :D (not all the time but when he does it melts my heart!!) Good luck sweetie!

          I've tried the drops to help relieve gas and it's helped before. I discovered that my son gets overly stimulated really easily, so I wrapped him in his favorite blanky, stuck his binky in and cradled him close. The key was making it dark so I put the blanky over his head, only enough he couldn't see anything else but could still breath . Lol
          On top of all that I rock him, and sing/humm until he calms down and then put him into bed. Sometimes he just has to scream it out and that's fine too. Breaks my heart but if he is clean, dry, and fed then he's just fussing to fuss. Babies sure can be stubborn, but it doesn't mean you are doing a bad job!

              Unfortunately it is a guessing game and many times we wished they had come with manuals! Still do at times when trying to deal with different issues that come up!
