My daughter is 5 weeks and her belly seems to be hurting her since yesterday. She spit up yesterday 4 times throughout the day. it didnt just spit out, it FOUNTAINED out. she is only breastfed. but last night and today she seems to be just hurting in her belly, she just lays there and doesnt seem like she has much energy. she cries even when she isnt hungry or need changed (she doesnt normally cry unless she needs something) and the cry she makes today and yesterday has been a painful sounding cry. she doesnt have a high temp, its normal...
its really sad :( im a new mom and need some advice as to what to do to relieve her pain.
oh i also wanted to add that her dr knows of her spitting up she went to the dr on monday but yesterday she spiut up more than what i had told the dr on monday. and she said it doesnt sound bad but now she seems to be hurting and her temp is 99 degrees.
like right now she is smiling and happy and movi

Just hang in there though, and keep loving and comforting her. Also, keep watching the fever, and since she's spitting up so much, keep watching that she's wetting her diapers. If she isn't wetting herself, then that could be a sign that she's getting dehydrated. Here's a link that gives a good guideline for how many wet diapers she should be having on average. It also talks about pooping, but as it notes in the bottom (and was my experience with both my kids) if you nurse, it's not uncommon for them to NOT poop that much, because their bodies so efficiently process the milk there isn't as lot left to come out.
