My daughter has been having tummy issues since she was about 2 months old! They changed her formula about 4 times which she is now on soy but still has tummy issues where she will be fine all day and the out of the blue you will get a crying spell for
About 2 hours! She's on 3Ml of Prilosec 2x a day and Mylanta for the fits...we've tried introducing
Solids but it just made the tummy issues worse!

My daughter had a horrible case of colic from about two weeks until she was three months old. We tried gripe water that turned her lips black, baby Zantac, other prescriptions.. you name it, we tried it. "Babies Magic Tea" was the only thing we used that not only eliminated the gas, but helped with her hiccups too. I still toss a dose in her bottle. This stuff is fantastic.

What about a probiotic? My friend told me her son's pediatrician and her husband (pharmacist) recommended one for her breastfed child. I asked my dr about one this past weekend because my son's bowel movements seemed to change (increased frequency and blowouts) so I started a probiotic. Not sure if is helping or not yet.

Does your child have a cow milk protein allergy? It is the most common food allergy in babies and children. If she does, or even just has a sensitivity to it, then she likely also has one to soy. My son had terrible reflux and colic and it turns out there were a few contributing factors. He has a sensitivity to cow milk protein, so I had to cut all dairy out of my diet (he is mainly breastfed) which helped a TON, and he also had an upper lip tie which was causing him to suck in too much air on both the breast and the bottle. We had it revised and now his latch is great, and his reflux and colic are gone. I would bet that she has a cow milk and soy protein allergy... try switching her to either a hypoallergenic formula like Nutramigen, or try a goat milk formula like Kabrita. We had to supplement my son the first few months of his life while we dealt with some breastfeeding issues and since he couldn't tolerate any formula with cows milk we switched him to a goat milk formula and he did great on it. Goat milk most closely resembles the protein, fat, and carbohydrate structure of breast milk and is much easier for babies to digest due to the softer curds as compared to cow milk. Goat’s milk does not contain agglutinin, therefor the fat globules do not cluster together, making them easier to digest. Goat milk is also much less likely to cause an allergic reaction than cows milk because goat milk casein is much more similar in make up to human breast milk than cow's milk casein is and contains only trace amounts of the allergen alpha S1. Many babies who can not tolerate cow milk do well with goat milk. Hope this helps! I know how terrible the reflux can be :(

Have you tried Gripe water? My first child had terrible digestive issues for the first 3 months. He did very well on Gripe Water and also chamomile tea.
