Hi! It seems like I've monopolized this website in the last 3-4 days, I apologize for keeping on this topic, but I'm so tired and so is my baby after each night of wiggling and writhing himself to sleep. I'm glad you all have helped me consider that his system is immature and probably the cause of his troubles (and not the foods I'm eating).
I finally let him keep going last night and he wiggled and writhed and grunted himself into a full fledged cry. I thought maybe he was just needing to do his thing and could sleep that way, but apparently not. It is really hard to see him in so much discomfort- but also his grunts and groans are SO loud that virtually no one could 'sleep through it" or even learn to sleep through it.
Today I took him to the pediatrician and he said it's ok to give him mylicon but i don't know how often? IT says you can give it to them up to 12 times a day (with each feeding), but I wouldn't want to do that! Does anyone here use Mylicon? If so, how often do you use it? How quickly does it work? Is it something that LLL totally disagrees with? I tried some today at 1pm and it seemed to help him break down gas bubbles and be in less pain, but i don't know when the next time I should use it is.
