I'm a new mom and never thought it would be this challenging. But it seems if my baby is awake he is never happy, he is always crying and grunting and pulling his legs to his belly then locking them back straight, he seems to drink his formula fine(enfamil gentle ease is what doctor has me givin him, but he arches his back and does all these signs showing he's trying to push something out of his body and nothing comes out. I've tryed using gripe water, rubbing his belly, moving is legs in circles, gas drops everything. He spits up after every feeding and if not within 2 hours of finishing the bottle he will wake up to projectile vomiting from nose and mouth. The weird thing to me is he Wales up at 9am, with all these symptoms, then at 3pm, with all symptoms then again at midnight taking 2 to 3 hours to calm down and get back to sleep. This is an EVERYDAY thing. Sometimes it happens unbeaten times. But always at these times he is more in pain than ever... He is only comfortable on my chest slightly tilted but must be mainly sitting up. He's only 4 weeks old I can't stand seeing him in pain, it frustrates me and makes me feel bad. What can I do to help him?
