Fussy Babies

Fussy Babies

Most babies will have a period of increased fussiness starting at around 2 weeks of age and usually peaking between 6-8 weeks of age. Although, this is a normal developmental stage for infants it can be very stressful for parents and caregivers. We are always happy to discuss your baby's fussiness over the phone or see you in the office if you are concerned.  If you are worried or feel that something is just not right, please take your child's temperature and contact us or the after hours advice line.
