Nothing can evoke more emotion than a fussy infant who just does not seem to be able to get settled. Add to that some maternal sleep deprivation and you have a recipe for some real tears. It can make you feel so helpless when you have tried everything, feeding, burping, changing the diaper, and the baby continures to cry. There are a myriad of reasons the baby is fussy, but many times it all comes down to tummy ache. These suggestions revolve around relieving gas pain in the infant. These methods have worked in other situations as well, including soothing the fussy infant after a surgical procedure.
One of the most difficult things to deal with when parenting is a new experience is the crying baby. It gets really tough when the crying just won’t stop. There may be several causes of crying in an infant. If the baby seems to be hungry all the time, cries and arches the back with spitting up, then gastroesophageal reflux may be what is causing all the fussiness.
