DD is SOO cranky (11 weeks old) HELP

Stefanie - posted on 03/14/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My DD has been a fussy and difficult baby from the get go. She was diagnosed with reflux at 6 weeks and the medicine has stopped the excessive spit up but she is still so cranky. I feel like I can't do anything to make her happy. I am just looking for some advice or to know I am not alone. Will this ever end or will she just be a miserable person?

Have you looked into a milk allergy? Sometimes the crankiness is from the reflux but sometimes there is also a milk allergy that also irritates the reflux. If you breastfeed I would start a food log. Log what you eat and how baby acts throughout the day. The more detailed you can be the better. Then take out all milk and milk products. Record baby again. If that improves baby's moods. Then gradually add in milk products. If baby's mood changes again then you know you can't eat that milk product. If baby is on formula check with your doc which kind would be best to use if there is a milk allergy. Many times babies can't have milk base formula or a breastfeeding mom can't have milk, but once baby is able to drink milk (12 mos.) baby does fine. Their tummies just have a hard time with it when they are little.
