Witching hour

My sweet little Willow (7weeks old) through the day and then every night around 5pm from 5 weeks old will cry till she wears her self out and fall asleep 😴 this can be at worst case 11pm best case 6:30pm. Throughout this she can be settled by bouncing, walking, going to the shops, every night she seems to want something different but as soon as you stop it's world war 3 😫😭 last night my husband, Willow and I all cried huddled together after he read on the internet that this could last till 3 or 4 months old. Please Mummas tell me I'm not the only one?!

Nothing worked for my kids . It went on from I want to say age 6-12 weeks . With my oldest I was always desperate to fix it , with my second I had the perspective to know it would end and just make it through the crying instead of trying to fix it . Still held her and everything through it but wasn’t feeling all of the heightened emotions and was able to be calmer ❤️

A routine is best to get into . My son was like this until I got him into a routine . Now he’s 5 months and goes to bed like a champ and it’s been this way since 3 months

Try not to over stimulate with lights and noise during the day! It should pass before then, good luck mama! I remember doing the circus act to get my baby to stop crying too. She may or may not have colic. Also look up the 5 S’s for babies, swaddle, side-stomach position, shush, suck, and swing. One or all five might be needed but if you do these things baby should stop crying. You also have to relax and not tense up during it, baby senses that. Helps comfort them when crying. Helped us out!!!
