We have tried all kinds of formula from similac advance to anything soy. She wont take her pacifier anymore all she does is cry when we try. Is it her botttle? The formula? The pacifier? I am a new mom and completetly lost and her dr just says wait it out in three months it will be better. I am not sure we can listen to her in pain that long we need to help her now and figure out why she draws her knees up and claws and screams till she is hoars sounding.

if ur lil draws her knees towards here chest it means she is not feeling well and has an upset tummy...u need to try all different formulars to see which one suits her and it could be an expensive exercise unless u can call the company and see if they send out a sample pack for lil was constipated when we put him on s-26 so we switched to karecare gold plus and he had no problems with it...if u dont want to wait it out for 3mths then take her to see another doctor for a second opinion or better a pediatrician or ur health nurse in your area whom ur suppose to take your child for a regular check up...

that sounds very much like my second daughter and we found out tht it was becuase she had reflux... we ended up using a nan pro formula that is easy digestable and the doctor put her onto zantak, as for the constipation u can add colxal drops to the formal to easay the bowl movements.. good luck i hope it eases soon. our daughter grew out of her reflux the more active she has become.. the baby swings are good to calm them down as it feels like they are still being rocked in their mums arms

My son had GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and was highly sensitive to dairy and soy and all their derivates. You may want to ask to be referred to a Gastroenterologist to evaluate.

i had this same problem with one of mine... i sympathize with u... not sure where u r but Karriecare AR (reflux formula, its thicker and it needs big hole teats) is what worked for him. also i had to cut his meals to a every strict 3 and a half hrs... no sooner. wind is not good either (fan, aircon, breeze)... We got to the stage we could not leave the house without a cloth nappy over his head.... good luck... and make sure u r getting some YOU time.
