Need help with night time and stomach aches
Our baby is 17 days old. The first 10 days were awesome he was sleeping very regularly and feeding well.
He is still feeding well, but we noticed that he cluster feeds in the evening which seems to be normal from what we have read. But at night from about 9 pm -3 am he loses his mind and screams the loudest we have heard.
He won't go down without a lot of soothing and will only go for 1 hour and up again, ready to eat; this has lasted the last 3 days we have to give him 1 bottle of formula because my wife cannot handle the lack of sleep.
We tried 1 night without formula to see if that would help and it didn't. The morning comes 6 am and he will poop about 3 times in 5 minutes and be great for the day again. Until night time when it starts over. Can we give him gripe water to help over night? Any suggestions?
