my little baby girl had some infant gas/colic the first 3 to 6 weeks of life and then it seemed to go away. now at almost 4 months it has seemed to have come back...she gets terrible gas pains at night time...usually around midnight, lasting until about 4am. she fusses a lot and only feels better after having passed the gas and then it builds up again.
she's gone from a baby who sleeps well (every two to three hours) to one who sleeps not very well (every hour or so woken by needing to pass gas)...i am only breastfeeding her...and i've been very careful about my diet...no milk, cheese, green veggies that cause gas....so i'm baffled as to why she's suddenly got this infant gas return...
anyone have any experience with infant gas/colic returning? and ideas on what can cause this? i've heard teething could be a culprit...and she's certainly working her gums a lot and generating lots of saliva.
i feel so bad for her. she's very uncomfortable...i'm down to eating an incredibly bland diet and only drinking water and it's not helping eliminate the gas. gripe water before bed time doesn't seem to help much either. poor little bub.
