Hi,,your baby crying continuously can be due to following reasons
1- nasal block can cause both irritability and feeding difficulty.
2-abdominal colicks
3-hunger itself.
This may be mostly viral fever-a small dose of antihistamine can help in clearing the nostrils and also slightly quieten the baby.
You have to show the baby to your pediatrician again in view of the incessant cry and especially poor feeding .
