I can't speak to the effectiveness of gas drops. The 'rule' of colic is that crying will last for at least three hours, for at least three days, for three weeks in a row. But there isn't a cure for colic, and only lots of speculation about what might be a cause, so it probably wouldn't be helpful to determine it as that anyway, right? You're doing a great job, mama. I second the above, in that this sounds really normal for a baby your baby's age, and that there is nothing wrong with your breastmilk, which is so healthy for him. I know it can be hard to see your little one in distress, but it sounds like when it happens, you are responding promptly and attentively, and have found a solution that works (baby on you, leaning back). And so that is really great!
Instead of continuing to put yourself through this extremely stringent diet, trying to find a mystery food culprit that may or may not exist, perhaps doing more-of-what-already-works could be helpful? Is baby being carried/held upright for most of the day? Are you able to sleep when baby is on your chest at night? If not, do you sleep when baby sleeps during the day at all to catch up on some of those hours?
It is so important that you are nourished while you are nourishing this little one! I hope you will allow yourself a balanced and diverse diet again! (And I also hope that at two weeks, you have some cheerful helpers who can whip up some tasty dishes FOR you!)
