My daughter is five a half months old... she'll be 6 months on the 19th. Ever since she was a newborn, she has been the fussiest, crankiest, most MISERABLE baby I've ever known... She was born emergency c-section so not sure if that has affected her.... When she was only a few days, she'd constantly cry, no matter what. The only time she wouldn't cry was at the breast,but she'd start crying soon after that too. She'd always vomit and scream and she'd bring her legs close to her chest and act like she was in pain. So they thought she had a milk protein intolerance.... I started to pump and dump until my system was free of dairy and soy (I gave her Similac Alimentum while I wasn't nursing) and that didn't make any difference.
She has never stopped being a miserable baby. She's had ultrasounds of her tummy done, bloodwork, physical exams... they can't find anything wrong with her. Most of the day she fusses and whines, she can't keep herself happy, she won't play alone for more than a few minutes without screaming.... it's getting to the point where I want to rip my hair out! I'm at my wits end.... I just want her to be happy! But she's not! She literally cries over EVERYTHING! When I feed her, play with her, put her in the highchair, lay her on the floor, put her in the jumper, carry her, stick her in the car seat, take her for a drive, bring her shopping... anything at all! She fusses or whines at LEAST once. She's a good sleeper, so I can't knock her that. But she is just soooooooooooo miserable. My husband and I get on each others nerves so much more frequently lately because she is constantly fussy and it's driving us crazy. We thought there'd be a light at the end of the tunnel by the time she was 12 weeks but there hasn't been! She's just as miserable, if not more, than she was when she was born.
Any advice? Has anyone else experienced this? I love my daughter so much but I can't stand the constant fussing and crying.... I really want her to just be a happy little girl!!! Thank you so much for anyone who can help me!
