My little guy will NOT stop crying. He cries every time he eats and spits up all over. 2-3 times after one feeding and then wants more. He is making me miserable because I feel like I can't help him. I have decided on cutting out dairy but I don't know how much that will help since I don't really eat/drink much dairy. I am not sure what I need to be eating in order for him to feel okay. I have him on a probiotic and I have gripe water and gas drops that I sometimes use. He screams all day and then sleeps at night which is nice but I want to pull my hair out during the day because I can't get anything done. I really am struggling. Help :(
How long have you been giving him probiotics? I have read mixed studies on giving newborns probiotics, some say it causes more issues.
Going through this we learned even if I didn't eat lactose, the body still made lactose to put into breast milk. Lactose is a byproduct when it breaks down glucose (sugar). So when I didn't eat lactose Kaylin was a only a bit less colicky. A month after our discovery of Kaylin's lactose intolerance we started her on soy formula and she has never been happier. I had a month's supply of milk frozen in the freezer from having to pump to just have a milk supply. I worked so very hard to have milk for her and I wasn't going to just throw it away.
After talking to your child's pediatrician you may want to try soy formula. I wish you and your baby the best of luck!
