Hi, I am new to the forum
my daughter is 8 weeks old. From day one, she has been "la screamita". She will scream for HOURS, inconsolable. After one particularly harrowing day, I took her to the pediatrician who called it colic.We are talking ALL DAY CRYING here.
I guess my main question is to ask is it normal for babies to be colicky during all waking periods during a day? she seems to do this for about 3 days, then will be an awesome, cool baby for 3-4 days and then have another 3-ish days of constant crying. She is breastfed and bottle fed pumped breastmilk.
I have eliminated both dairy and gluten from my diet,and I do not consume acidic foods -- nothing tomato based or vinegar based, no garlic, no strong flavors. She is on zantac for reflux and probiotics, as well as gas drops.
Nothing seems to help with the screaming though! I initially had oversupply and overactive let down, but I worked with a lactation consultant and have resolved that issue, mostly.
HAve any of you other BF-ing mommies had babies with colic this extreme? It just seems so strange that it is so inconsistent and when it comes on it is so severe and long lasting. Can you think of anything else I can do?
Her poop is normal for a breastfed baby. Green when I had oversupply but now is yellow and seedy, if a bit mucousy. She does still spit up most every feeding, sometimes large amounts. She doesn't projectile anymore though since we put her on zantac.
I'd appreciate any input you have !
