Renowned pediatrician Dr. Marc Weissbluth knows firsthand how stressful life can be for a sensitive, fussy newborn—not to mention the child’s frantic, exhausted parents.

Even extreme fussiness, he says, is not dangerous and usually stops when the child is about four months old. In the meanwhile, however, life can be tough for the whole family. But whether your baby cries for as long as eight hours a day, suffers from gas, refuses to sleep, or all of the above, Your Fussy Baby will gently guide your little one—and you—through this mysterious phase of infant growth. Inside you will discover • Why your baby cries so much: The most up-to-date research, including some fascinating possibilities that researchers are just beginning to explore. • Dangerous myths about fussiness: Facts and fiction about diet, mothering, proper medications, and much more that even your pediatrician may not know. • The emotional effects: Avoiding the guilt, anxiety, and frustration that having a fussy baby so often stirs up. • What to do when your baby fusses: Specific recommendations for what parents can do to minimize the distress that prolonged crying causes the whole family. • Expert, step-by-step advice on establishing healthy sleep habits for your baby.

Recommendations based on the experiences of parents of colicy infants are made on feeding the colicky infant, treating colic with medication, and soothing the infant. New theories are described linking colicky behavior to infant characteristics such as temperament, sleep habits, and breathing patterns. Excerpts from diaries kept by parents of colicky infants give a detailed description of colicky behavior and provide encouragement and practical advice on waiting for the infant to "outgrow" the condition.
