  • depending on her age (if under 6 months) it's likely that your child has reflux, which would make it painful for her to eat. she might also have gas. a milk allergy would probably have some other symptoms too like redness around the mouth or anus. you should definitely check with your child's doctor.

  • If you are breastfeeding, you may want to look at your diet. Sometimes babies are sensitive to mom's foods. Dairy (milk) is usually the culprit. Try cutting that out for about a week, and see if there is a change. If not, there are other foods you can cut out as well.

    If you are FF, it's probably the formula. Formula is more difficult for babies to digest, so their bodies have to work harder to digest it. You probably need to change formulas, and keep trying until you find one that agrees with her.

    It could also be the bottles. When feeding a baby from a bottle, the baby should be held upright at a 45* angle, and so should the bottle. Make sure no air is getting into the nipple, and be sure to burp her every few minutes.

  • Mine did the same thing, if your breastfeeding you might want to eliminate dairy. I had to, the problem is 100% gone, and it was BAD. She would never eat because she would start screaming 3 minutes into her feeding.

  • if she acts like she has a belly ache and hungry at the same time the worst thing to do his feed her cause your only feeding the belly ache just soothe her rock give her gas drops but whatever you do dont feed the belly ache it turns into screams!
