Ok I know this will sound like a very stupid question but how much of the day should I expect my 10 week (nearly 11 week) old baby to be awake for? She already has colic (or possible silent reflux according to doctors) which causes her to scream and cry for hours non-stop every evening until about midnight. She also screams her way through most feeds (day or night) and in recent week has become very grumpy in the day too ... basically she cries on and off all the time! Aside from the fact that it is driving me MAD I am worried that she is not going to develop well as I hardly get any chance to play with her due to all the crying. My OH thinks I spend to much time holding her or trying to play with her and that I should put her in her cot to sleep more but (a) she doesn't seem to like napping in the day and just cries and (b) I feel like a bad parent for sticking her out of the way and ignoring her. What do other people do? Does anyone else have a baby who was like this and grew out of it? Any comments or experience much appreciated!!
