4month old random crying

Hello
My 4 month old is very good sleeps through the night and has a daily routine
But lately he's been crying a lot during the day
He will cry randomly when he does I chagehis nappies and give him a hug till he stops but then a lot of the time now he he starts crying again as soon as I put him down then will stop for a minute after I've picked him up again
I know it's nt because he's hungry because he has a bottle ever 4 hours during the day and has plenty of ounces aswell plus he's on hungry babies formula.
Does this sound like teething or just clingy ness I try not to pick him up all the time when he cries I do give him a lot of me and him time during the day.

Any advice would be great
Thank you

Re: 4month old random crying

Hey! 

 

Try the following - put your baby in your stroller, place a clothiung hanger on the floor and roll your stroller over it back and forth. My nephew falls asleep immediately. 

 

If this doesn't work, follow the following:

 

Dr. Harvey Karp’s 5 S's

If your baby seems to be crying for “no reason,” pediatrician Harvey Karp advises parents to use the Five S's, which recreate the womb environment and activate your baby’s calming reflex.

  • Swaddling. Wrap your baby in a blanket so he feels secure.
  • Side or stomach position. Hold your baby so he's lying on his side or stomach. But always put him on his back when he goes to sleep.
  • Shushing. Create "white noise" that drowns out other noises: run the vacuum cleaner, hair drier, fan or clothes drier.
  • Swinging. Create a rhythmic motion of any kind. For example, take your baby for a ride in a stroller or car.
  • Sucking. Let the baby suck on something, such as a pacifier.
