Post 1073

I wrote you about my baby that won' t sleep during the day. Yesterday she didn' t sleep AT ALL (I' m not exagerating). When evening came she was screaming for hours on end, obviously tired but also because of the colic.
You mentioned that I should be giving her a colic remedy - I am using bennetts but obviously it' s not enough. Is there anything else you could suggest (besides Donatal and Buscopan). How can I get her to sleep more during the day?

Your baby should obviously be sleeping during the day, but she is not sleeping at all. There must be some problem that is preventing her from sleeping.It dos not appeaar to be colic as you seem to have tried several remedies without success. You do not mention if she is crying,is unhappy or in pain and whether she is very windy.Even more importantly you have not told me how she is fed and what her weight is. Please send me this information so that I can assist you further.
