    My 12 week old cousin
    lebelleartiste14 posted:
    My 12 week old cousin is a very unhappy baby. He constantly digs at his ears and eyes and rubs his face on any surface/object we give him. My family believes that his face/ears may itch. When you go near his ears with any kind of touch at all, he screams like its hurting him. He cry all the time with very few breaks in between, with actual tears, too. I may be young but i know babies only cry like that when they hurt, really bad. He doesn't respond to any kind of noise and wakes up to almost all vibrations. He doesn't sleep very well either due to this. He also throws up a lot. Not just a little bit of spit up, but A LOT. The doctors he goes to are pitting out all these nonsense theories as to what it could be, but all of the seem really off the wall and not even possible in a 12 week old infant. Does anyone know what could be going on with this beautiful baby boy? Please, my family is desperate!
