My LO will be three weeks old on Friday. She has always been a bit gassy and stomach achey, but the last few evenings she has shown signs of a tummy ache and cried off and on for a couple of hours straight. She always spits up some when she eats, but last night she spit up a lot. She did sleep through the night pretty well, feeding at 1,4 and 7 a.m., but she again seems to be uncomfortable this morning. She is still having bowel movements - but seems to be straining to get them out. No fever to speak of. I'm a new mom and just not sure if I should be worried about this persistent tummy ache. I hate to see her uncomfortable and crying about it. She is still sleeping plenty, which is a blessing, but I'm wondering if anybody has any ideas on how to help her or when I should think about getting it checked out. She was at the pediatrician the end of last week and was gaining weight well.
Thanks for your thoughts/advise.
