I too, feel your pain. Jaydence was super fussy for the first few weeks and we could not figure out why. People said that some babies were just fussy. Finally at the midwives office I poured my heart out that my poor baby was fussy and looked like she was in pain after eating. While I was holding her even, she would draw her knees up into her chest and scream out in pain. I would cry, I felt so bad. My midwife suggested I try drinking Catnip tea to try and help her digestive system. She also suggested the Gripe Water. I got the Gripe Water locally but whenever I try to give her some she chokes then gets scared and cries even harder. Finally I was able to find some Catnip tea and that day I drank 3 - 6 oz. cups. THE. NEXT. DAY I swore someone switched my baby with another one during the night. She was so content and happy. I could not believe the difference it seemed to make for her.
Just my .02
Just a tip for giving meds.....you can buy a med dispenser that is a soother with a cup for the meds attached. Your little one can suck the meds out at their own pace.
I give Billie his meds with a 1ML syringe. I just squirt .3 of a ML into his cheek at a time and he doesn't choke that way.
