It is difficult to answer your question with certainty without being able to see your baby.You do not mention whether he is being breastfed. Your baby may be having a problem with colic although he is a bit young still for this possibility.Try him on a mild colic medicine such as Bennets Colic Remedy and see if he is any better. If he does not improve please write in again and please also mention how your little baby is being fed.
