My 6 week LO is fussy every night between 6:30-9. I'm guessing he is colicky. He just cries. I have tried gripe water and gas drops. Neither seem to help at all. Looking for ways to help sooth him.

Where is he sleeping? By you or alone?

Sorry to say that is typical "fussy time". Most young babies go through a time where every day at roughly the same time they just fuss. I think it's kind of a phenomenon, no one really knows why. just do the best that you can but know that it is normal

Witching hours! My son did the same and I found that if I had him asleep before that time he would sleep through it!

I agree with carolynn. My Lo was the same way around that age and actually at the same time of day yours is. We just tried our best to give her a little extra love/attention. I would rock her a little, hold her and walk around while bouncing a little, was always doing the "shhhh" in her ears. Sometimes I would just walk around and calmly talk about random things in almost a whisper. Seemed to help relax her.

My daughter loves her baths so she gets it during her fussy time.

It's the bewitching hours where the little one is tired but doesn't want to sleep, or at least that's the case for my little guy.

Oh yeah, gotta have that fussy hour. It's crazy bc my daughter is 9mo and I've already forgotten about that until I read this. It all goes by so fast and then we deal with new issues...time flies and remember it only lasts a short time. ;)

Same here...went through that with my LO. Good news - it gets better! Had luck using ColicCalm homeopathic during this time.

Turn your shower on. Apparently the noise reminds them of the womb. He'll zone out on the noise and hopefully won't cry! Best of luck!

Agree with Amanda G - I read "Happiest Baby on the Block" and it was a huge help. Based on the book, I bought the baby shusher and its a miracle worker for my LO even now!

Mine did that too from about 2-3 weeks old until 3 months...from 7-10 at night for different periods of time, sometimes an hour, sometimes 3 hours... I would just hold him, rock him, and walk around with him till he stopped.

My daughter went through the same thing. I would hold her and sing to her. Also, we had to change her formula. After that, she felt much better. Good luck!

Thank you everyone for great advice! Will definitely have to give them a try. Francine- he sleeps in a rock n' play right by my side of the bed, during the day I have him usual with me or in a bouncer or pack n' play
