Babies Are Fussy And Have Trouble Sleeping At Night?
my child was only 2 months old on 07 yesterday. until now exclusive breastfeeding. Defecate once every 2-3 days. when he was 1 month or more, usually he slept soundly during the day and night (2 hours-3 hours and then just woke up to suckle). But in the past few days my baby has had difficulty sleeping. continue to fuss. if you fall asleep usually every 15 minutes to wake up. he can sleep soundly only from 8 am to 12 pm. and when he was sleepy he was often surprised (made him awake) today he was surprised more often than usual. in my opinion it seems like he is constantly fussy because of sleepiness because of the difficulty of sleeping earlier. and the one that made him difficult due to his shock. or what? please explain and socialize🙏🙏

The cause of fussy babies is often caused by:
Wet diapers Diaper rash or irritation due to the use of diapers Hungry / thirsty Uncomfortable with the use of clothing, bedding, blankets, etc. Room temperature is too cold or too hot Not comfortable with the position of sleep and the atmosphere of the surrounding environment (noise, too bright or too dark ) Want to be accompanied by parents Etc.
It is quite difficult to guess the cause of babies who often fuss suddenly because babies can only communicate by crying. Another cause that needs to be identified is whether the baby is experiencing symptoms of a cold or those around him. Babies with cold symptoms will make it difficult and uncomfortable during sleep. In addition, digestive disorders such as infantile colic / abdominal pain can also be the cause of babies often crying loudly in the afternoon or night. Colic is often caused by lactose intolerance or cow's milk allergy. Bowel obstruction can also make a baby's stomach feel uncomfortable. Normally breastfed babies can defecate more often up to 10x until the age of 2 months. But as we get older, babies will begin to experience less bowel movements. Defecating your baby tends to be normal. Beware if the stools become hard, go out like goat droppings and babies have difficulty straining when defecating. This can be a sign of constipation in infants and requires treatment.
To help deal with fussy babies, you can try the following:
Hugging and holding the baby so the baby feels comfortable. Listen to white noise music in the baby. White noice is believed to be similar to the noise in the mother's womb when the baby is in the womb. Start introducing the baby day and night so that the baby can form its own time to sleep by turning off the lights during sleep, avoiding the activity / pelankan sound at night and do not invite to play when the baby is awake. Increase the activity of the baby during the day Change the diaper every 4-5 hours, Give a diaper rash cream Give the baby breast milk every 3-4 hours and burp the baby so as not to vomit / spit up Stay calm, try to be patient in understanding the condition of the baby
If the baby's condition does not improve, do not hesitate to consult a pediatrician to get more complete and relevant information.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
