i breast feed my baby but she is really colic, she screams day and night and her tummy is so hard. a friend suggested LF formula so i tried one bottle with colic relief drops in it and it made such a difference she burped straight away after. i don't want to stop breat feeding her. so anyone any suggestions abut fighting colic? she's 2 months old and it's heartbreaking seeing he in that much pain?

I would get her latch checked. She not be latched properly and is swallowing a lot of air. Also, do you have oversupply (too much milk)? This can cause baby to have lactose overload (NOT the same a lactose intolerant). It means baby is getting too much foremilk which causes a very gassy, fussy baby. It can also cause green, foamy stools. These links should help:

Have you tried Mylicon drops? I would keep nursing, give mylicon drops, and make sure you get her to burp after feeding. (You could try and cut out milk products to see if it helps.)

i don't think it's her latch cos for the first 2-3 weeks she was fine she didn't even lose any of her birth weight she was feeding great and putting weight. but thanks for the links i'm going to take a look at them now
