Re: New to the board.. Gassy Fussy Baby
First off tell your husband to chill out and stop stressing you.
It's actually fairly normal for babies to get super fussy for a few hours in the evening, they call it the witching hour. But since you say his belly is all hard, obviously there is gas or something going on. It could be as simple as your baby's digestive system still adjusting to milk. It could just be your baby has a hard time getting rid of gas.
My daughter was like that the first several weeks. It turned out that in our case I had a foremilk hindmilk imbalance and that combined with my trying to schedule feedings (I thought I wasn't supposed to nurse more often than every 3 hours) was resulting in a hungry baby with an upset tummy. When I started feeding on demand things magically cleared up. She was also always hard to burp. We'd work on her for ages after every feeding and still not get a burp half the time.
What do his dirty diapers look like?
I think your elimination diet may be a bit extreme for the symptoms you are describing. MOST of the time when you are dealing with a fussy baby and no other symptoms it doesn't have anything to do with what you're eating.
