Inconsolable newborn: advice/support?
I had my first baby via c-section yesterday, and despite everyone saying babies tend to be sleepy in the first 24 hours she cries nonstop and my husband and I are going insane. The nurses and pediatrician tell us she is completely healthy and this is normal but I just can’t believe this will be our new normal. We try swaddling, shushing (all the 5 S’s really!), I feed her constantly, but she just won’t stop fussing. Did this happen to anyone who was able to get their baby to sleep/be more calm? Any tips/word of wisdom would be much appreciated, we are losing our minds over here and the inability of the nurses to identify any causes is driving me crazy!
