Why Is My 4 Month Old Baby Crying?
My 4 month old son is screaming at the top of his lungs and I don't know why! I have tried everything: walking around, singing, playing, change his diaper, feed him. He has a stuffy nose but I cleaned it out pretty good with saline and a nose aspirator. He is still screaming.
Help!!! What do I do?

Tips For Crying 4 Month Old Baby
Babies that cry whatever we do can be very stressful. And often, it is not so easy to know why they are so sad.
But since your baby is 4 months old, you do know each other pretty well now; does he appear to be in pain?
A stuffy nose could indicate a sore throat or ear pain. Does he have a fever?
If he does, or if you somehow can check his throat and it is red, you could take him to a doctor.
If you're not too worried about his health, you can try taking him out either for a stroller walk or a car ride to help him fall asleep. Sometimes babies that have a cold sleep so bad, that they simply become over tired and need help to rest.
If his nose becomes stuffy while asleep, try tilting his bed slightly to raise the part where he rests his head.
Other than that; keep an eye on any signs of illness and try to just be there for your son.
Hope this helps,
