    It won't take all it's bottle and we don't know why it's crying :eek: Tried a dummy, burping it, rocking it... It just wants us to panic and call it's mom I think :nono: Our baby experience is highly limited lol. Help :(

    How old is he/she? Firstly you need to rule out

    too hot/cold
    pain
    hunger
    nappy change needed

    She's 7 1/2 weeks old and she's not in pain, she stops but then randomly starts up again. She's taken most of her bottle but there's still just short of 3 oz in there. I hope she doesn't need a nappy change, her mom did it just before she got here at 11! Guess I'll have to check :( She had done big burps and farts. On my knee none the less, felt like I'd been shot

    How long has she been awake? Ruling out the above, maybe she is tired, and gotten herself overtired. Put her in her pram and take her for a stroll :)

    Have you tried giving her water? She could be thirsty.

    It does sound like shes fighting sleep, you might find walking round with her resting on your shoulder will do the trick.

    Could also be reflux or colic, does she spit any of her milk back up after her bottle?
    The heat will be making her less hungry as well so don't worry if she's not taking her full bottle, as long as she's taking some and she's having plenty of wet and dirty nappies
