Help parents. I have a 5 month old that cannot drink soy or cow milk. Right now we are on goats milk but she still seems to be fussy. We can still hear her belly making all kinds of noises. We have tried smilac and enfamil and no luck. Also tried a few others her GI prescribed and no luck there either. I feel like I'm running out of options. Help please.

Chloe... less solids (technically should be having none at his young age... 2-3 times/day is way too much) and more milk... offer a bottle every 2-3 hours. Ounce for ounce breast milk and formula have more calories than solids and it's what his body needs most. Filling his little tummy w/ solids is likely to make the situation worse, not better. Hopefully increasing his milk intake will help w/ the weight gain, but if not he may need the hospitalization to figure out what is going on. <3

Also, to have tried, soy, cow, goat, similac and enfamil and "few others her GI prescribed", all within 5 months? Seems like a lot of switching and that can't be easy on her tummy either. Lot of babies are fussy, my first cried and seemed gassy and in distress for 12 weeks, it was colic and it passed. Is she gaining weight?

I had two that were 'happy spitters'... spit up a LOT, but weren't really cranky unless I ate broccoli, cabbage, or onion rings. ;) Then my boy who had reflux and was a fussy thing a lot, but didn't spit up near as much as his sisters had... All 3 grew and thrived on my milk alone though. So much switching of milks can't be easy on this little girl. ♥

Has the doctor actually diagnosed a milk allergy? Is she just fussy and gassy or is she experiencing other symptoms as well? If she is under the care of a GI they would be the place to keep going for advice on your daughter's health.
