When my nine week old daughter was born, she never cried. Little by little she started crying but I was always able to figure out why. Lately she cries it seems for no reason. I think to myself she has been fed, changed, rocked in all of her favorite positons and given her a pacifier. I try singing to her, talking, the works. I'm not saying that she's like this every single time she's unhappy, but its headed down that road. The only other thing It could be is she's in some kind of pain. I've been taking her to the doctor every time I thought something was wrong with her and was told the she was in perfect health. Maybe she's just doing what babies do but I dont want to assume anything. To make matters worse I'm going on very little sleep. I just need ideas on how to keep her happy(cause I hate to see her cry) and keep my sanity. Any ideas?

My daughter did the same thing. She had colic. But she got over it. Or she was still hungry. My daughter will eat 6-8 ounces and then another 2-4 a 1/2 hour to an hour. So your daughter might still be hungry. Talk to her doctor about colic.

It does sound like colic and your doctor has said she is healthy. So if everything else has been ruled out eg. diaper rash, hunger, feeling cold, hot, or sick in general, then it probably is colic.

Have you tried putting her in a sling? That does wonders for some babies. My son also had colic but wasn't fond of the sling.
There is also lots of great info on the internet about colic and dealing with it.
There was also a book mentioned before, I think called "The Happiest Baby on The Block"...I'm not sure who the author is. You can search for it on Google.
A few mothers have said this is a great book to read if you are dealing with a fussy baby.
Good luck

Thank you ladies for your reponse. Turns out that after a couple of days she calmed down. Now she's even starting to sleep about five hours straight at night which is wonderful!

She is the cutest little itty-bitty mama i've ever seen! I'm sure we all feel that way about our children though.
