LO is 5 weeks old. Around the time of his 3 week growth spurt, he began screaming and kicking his legs after eating mostly breast milk, some formula. Our first thought was that he was still hungry, so we began feeding him 4 oz. Didnt make a difference.
We've talked to the nurses at our peds office numerous times, to the point that we feel very annoying, and have been to the doc twice. First they had me cut dairy from my diet, we started gas drops and gripe water, and now he's on Zantac for possible reflux. Nothing is helping. We also switched to sensitive formula for when we supplement.
Has anyone experienced anything similar? We are getting sick of being told this is normal and the result of his under developed system. I've been around a lot of babies, and screaming and kicking for an hour after eating is not normal. Any thoughts on what we might be able to do next other than see a new doc...?
I don't have much advice just wanted to say I could have written this myself! The only difference is we are on prilosec. My office keeps brushing it off as well, but if it keeps up I am going to another office. I would do the elimination diet but also follow your instincts. Sadly it takes 2 weeks I think for dairy to leave your baby's system. Good luck and sorry you are dealing with this as well!
