khadoooj posted:
My baby is 7 weeks old and at night he gets really fussy he already has what the doctor called colic but it is getting better now, recently i am experiencing another problem at night esp. After 12 am he will be crying for milk and i will feed him mostly breast milk but he will keep asking for more and this crying and eating will keep ongoing until 4 am when he finally vomits!!! Then he will sleep, please i need your help is this normal?? What can i do to stop him from eating? My mum told me that these may be only gases so i burp him and don't feed but he will keep crying for milk even with the pacifier!!! I am lost and disturbed ((((

It does sound like colic. He probably needs to eat and then keeps wanting the breast as comfort. Unfortunately, your body doesn't distinguish and will keep producing until he is done at the breast, whether he is hungry or not. Rest assured, colic will eventually disappear. Until then, as the mother of a baby who was extremely colicky, my heart goes out to you.

It may tire you out, but just hold him close and let him suckle at your breast until he is completely asleep, then burp him and lay him down, it is probably just a phase and will pass, but dont "not" let him suck at the breast if he is wanting to because this can cause other issues. Try and see what happens...good luck
