My ds is almost 8 weeks old and in the last week he has been having a lot of night anxiety, or at least that is what i think it is. He will only sleep for 1 1/2 hours (at the most) and the whole time he is asleep he his making groaning noises, and pushing and shaking his arms and legs - they are really anxious looking movements. Also, for the last month he's had a rash all over his face, scalp, front and back. I have eliminated dairy, but I am wondering if there is another food group I should be eliminating? Has anyone run into anything like this?

Please let me know if you have any information or have experienced this.

Thank you.

I am wondering if that rash is itchy and that is what is keeping him so restless.

Have you checked with your health care provider? Having a rash on one so young for that long concerns me.
