Another curious question...our little Lizzie was a severe crier from 2 weeks to about 10 weeks. I dislike using the term "colic"--it's tossed about so frequently in my part of the country, and really, what IS colic? Anyway, I mean literally that she cried almost all the time she was awake.
Ironically, she smiled early (4 weeks), but those moments were very short--she could be smiling at you for 1 minute and then--BAM--crying like crazy. Our first did this too, but only for the regular 3 hours in the evening. Lizzie was all day.
But around 8 weeks she started getting a little better...and now (she's 14 weeks) she hardly ever cries at all.
It seems like some babies are just so mad about being out of the womb that they just protest! And we tried everything--I know folks that haven't had babies like this don't believe that (I used to be one of them)--but nothing ever worked.
Anyone else have a theory on why some babies are like this? What makes them suddenly stop?
