Thread: We Have Our First Baby
#1 We Have Our First Baby07-20-2011, 08:35 AM
Wife and I are now fostering a 3 month old baby named Iker. He's a cute kid but for the life of me, I don't know why he won't stop crying. With the exception of when he sleeps, he's been crying incessantly. We try to feed him, he doesn't want it. We rock him, no go. Put him in the little swing, nope. Diaper? Dry as a bone. Lay him down, nope. Cry, cry, cry. And I don't mean cry, I mean wail. It's been a little over 12 hours since we got him and all he's been doing is wailing and crying. So, a little help from the parents out there because we're getting to our wits end to the point that we're going to call DYFS to come get him.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

OK, he finally stopped crying. Put him back in the little swing thingy and he's fine...for now. What I don't understand is that he hasn't eaten but about 3 ounces of formula in a little over 13 hours.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

This is one up tight kid. At his age crying is about the only way he has to express anything at all.
He'll stop unless there is something wrong. Ours had a pyloric stenosis, which is a problem with the pyloric valve in the stomach - fairly easily corrected. But if that's the case he'll vomit almost everything he eats.
Maybe he's just up tight. Be sure to get medical people involved. Not eating is evidence of a problem. No chance he's suffering from drug withdrawal, is there?

It's hard for him. He's used to his home environment, even if it was not great, and he's adjusting to new people. 3 month olds have a limited range of vision and are overly sensitive to things like smells and fabrics that might be unfamiliar.

And withdrawals is a strong possibility.
Alcohol withdrawal: Signs of alcohol withdrawal may include hyperactivity, crying, irritability, poor sucking, tremors, seizures, poor sleeping patterns, hyperphagia, and diaphoresis. Signs usually appear at birth and may continue until age 18 months. Withdrawal typically appears within 3-12 hours after delivery.Rest In Peace America
