My 6 wk old was diagnosed with gerd. I was told to ad rice cereal to formula and breastmilk. I do both because my babu does not latch on. It gave him stomach problems so I discontinued it. He drinks breastmilk during day and formula at night. He has no problems at night drinking the formula but has been waking up in the morning with very bad gas and stomach pains as his cries indicate pain. I give him colic calm, gas relief drops, gripe water and chamomile tea in between, lactation consultant gave me all these remedies. I don't know if it's my molk, formula or the gerd. He will have 1 bad colic episode a day and is fussy in between feedings. What do I do! I find myself crying every time he does and it makes it a long exhausting day for us both.
