  • its probably reflux... my son was born with it.. but usually by 5 months they start to get rid of it.. but what worked for us, was a little cereal in the afternoon.. and sure enough it helped alot.. he stopped fussing, and also the gas. He was 3 months when we started him on a little cereal.. nothing big but a little bit goes a long way.. have you talked to your doctor about this? also, some docs prescribe meds for this..

  • Sounds like reflux - bad heartburn (GERD) for babies. It can come and go all through childhood as the size and shape of kids "insides" and "outsides" don't quite match up.
    Take her to the doctor to be sure. She may need medicine to prevent damage.
