I'm brand new to LLL, but have been dealing with a fussy baby since day 1. my Little started out not eating at all, she would scream every time I put her on the breast, so she was fed exclusively expressed breast milk by bottle for the first month. Slowly she took to BF and has gotten to be quite efficient. She is now 10 weeks old and feeds for 5 min (tops) and is done. The problem is she proceeds to cry EVERY TIME after. Not terrible crying, but clearly upset, shes easy to calm down, just holding her over my shoulder and shushing does the trick. shes not hungry and I know shes getting enough because she has lot of wet diapers (maybe 6-8 a day). Also she hasn't had a spit up after the first month.
What's with the crying? She is generally fussy anyway, especially at night, but is a great sleeper. She seems to have normal gas, she almost always burps or passes gas easily. My pediatrician will not call it an allergy because she has normal poop, but I'm wondering if it could be a dairy allergy?
The only thing that makes this kid happy is to be up on my or my husbands shoulder. She is also not a fan of wraps/slings/carriers.
