  • are you using nutramigen? because there is an even MORE hypoallergenic formula out there i forget what its called but you can only get it behind the counter! my son was like this too, i said he had 3 modes: eating, sleeping or screaming

  • had my son on nutramigen as well. he had thrush badly too, make sure your baby doesn't have that. but the nutramigen and Dr Brown bottles were the life saver for us. after almost 8 weeks we weened him from the nutramigen to enfamil lipil and he was alright then.

  • If baby is 1 month you have a very high possibility of relactating. Given the fact that you are watching your precious one having such a hard time would you consider relactating? It is not that hard to get going and give baby what baby's belly needs and deserves. Have you looked into donor milk? It is so hard to watch a baby go through so much especially when baby is so little please consider what is best for baby and relactate. Good Luck on your journey!

  • BREASTFEED! Trust me, it will help sooo much with his tummy problems!

  • There is still the option to breastfeed!! He's still so young, re-lactation is VERY possible. It will make your little boy feel so much better. Imagine getting a belly-ache that made you scream every time you ate. That would be terrible, no baby deserves that!! Look into re-lactation. Do it for your baby!
