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?!

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!!!

My daughter did this and it turned out she was requiring food every other hour. I didn't know a baby could eat that much! I was told the stomach is the size of a marble. It blew my mind how hungry she would get and this is breast and formula fed baby.

We are going through this too. She’s fine during the day but around 6:00 at night she starts crying and fussing and won’t calm down til around 9:00. 😩 hoping this passes soon! She’s 3 months old and it started a couple weeks ago.

Turning the vacuum on with a swaddle was a godsend for us ! We have a 11 week old , good luck !

My daughter is 3.5 months old and she still does this. It’s better now that we got her on a nap schedule during the day so she doesn’t get to the point where she’s so overtired at night. It does get better mama!!! Having a bedtime routine also helped A TON!!! If your babe is breastfed, make sure there aren’t any allergies causing gas. I had to cut out gluten and eggs, but once we figured that out she was so much better.
