My son is almost 5 months old and is completely miserable! If he isn't crying then he's just got this blank stare across his face. I'm not sure what to do. It all started at about 4 weeks old. We eventually figured out he has food sensitivities and he is now on elecare (formula) which has eliminated the blood in his stool and lessened the crying but it's still not great. I have tried everything...different swings, activity mats, bouncers, jumpers.... Nothing keeps him entertained. He hardly ever smiles and has laughed twice. My daughter was such a happy baby I'm so confused! On top if it all she is only 23 months old so she needs my attention too. Someone help! I don't know how much longer I can last.

I've done research upon research and I'm at a loss. The only thing I haven't tried yet is taking him to a chiropractor.

Hi yes I've been to his pediatrician several times we also see a GI on a monthly basis. Other than the food sensitivities they can't find anything wrong. They've checked for hernias, we've tried acid reflux medication....nothing

Hi there, have you taken him to be assessed by a doctor? It's just this sounds like a stressful time for you and as a mother myself it doesn't sound right. If for nothing but peace of mind I would take him and explain all what you have posted. You want to look back and have enjoyed this time, not wished it away x
