My son is almost 8 weeks old and is so incredibly gassy. He screams bloody murder while passing gas or trying to. Some days are worse than others. This morning it was awful and my husband mentioned us trying formula instead. This has been on-going for weeks now. I have been dairy free for several weeks (with a few minor cheats). I have tried to do the elimination diet a few times but it is just so hard. I don't even know if I truly believe it is a allergy issue. One night I had a weak moment. I thought well if he is gonna scream I might as well have a full tummy so I ate a chocolate chocolate chip muffin. That night he barely cried at all.
His stools are currently yellow/orange and sometimes are mucousy. There used to be a few a day, but now he seems to have one MAJOR blowout once every three days. He did have some green tinged ones in the past.
He was placed on Axid starting last Monday. I do think he has reflux based on my experience with my daughter having it, but not sure the medicine is helping too much. My daughter was on prevacid and that seemed to be more effective (at least for her). His ped said that prevacid isn't reccommended for infant under 1.
I love BFing so much. I so don't want to quit, but this screaming/crying for hours each day is wearing me out emotionally and physically. HELP!!!
