My daughter was like that. And now at 3 months it's way better. I put her on gentlease and she was constipated too so she got a stool softner it helped tons with gas. I also recently changed her bottles to dr brown and that has helped. I was told about gripe water heard it's wonderful

There's an over the counter drop that helped so much when my daughter was itty bitty, mylacon (not sure on the spelling) it worked soooooooooooo good!

Go to a natural store like Green Field or Sun Harvest and find homeopathic natural drops for baby gas. They helped my baby and no worries because they were natural. I hope it helps and your baby can have some relief. I am with you, is painful to see your baby in pain all the time. Sometimes you have to go with your instincts... Doctors are to political so they don't get sue. Good luck! ;)

video tape it and go back to the pediatrician. Trust your instinct. You're your daughter's only advocate...push till they give you the right answer.

I've worked with several lactation consultants about my baby and I've been told these things: at 2 weeks and 6 weeks babies tend to eat more for several days to get your milk production up, and they tend to be fussier at this time. I didn't need to cut out dairy even though someone said it can help, it sometimes can help if you have a milk allergy to give it up. Cut out gassy foods. Use gas drops and try massage or pump the legs. My baby loves to be held and will be fussy for up to an hour after eating in the evening to get in snuggle time.

If you are breastfeeding try cutting all dairy out of your diet. I had to do this and it took several days before I saw any results, but within 2 weeks he was fine. I had to cut all dairy out of my diet! If baby is on formula then I would try switching formula.

Have you tried solids yet? If so, she just may not be ready for them. Also, all three of my kids needed Alimentum. It is a special formula made by similac that is hypoalergenic and helps a lot. It is really expensive (about $25 for a small can of powdered), but worth it. There is also another one out there called Nutramagen made by enfamil that is the same thing. If you are nursing, then maybe she is having some trouble with the foods you are eating. When my youngest was nursing, everytime I drank milk he got gas really bad.

My son did that for the first four months of his life. Practically every waking moment was him screaming in pain. Nothing worked for him. Colic sucks. But this too shall pass. He's now 3 years old and the happiest kid on earth.

My son was the same way I first started to take him to the chiropractor once a week to get adjusted.. Which helped a lot. but than a friend told me about colic-ease (they sell it at wegmans) Now he is soo enjoyable to be around
