My son is just under two weeks old. He's fed breast milk during the day, and formula at night. During the day, he's ultra cranky, hard (and sometimes impossible) to console and continually spits up the breast milk he's fed. At night, he sleeps pretty well.
I just don't get it. Isn't breast milk supposed to be better/easier on his tummy? Why does he keep throwing it up? I cut out dairy from my diet to see if that would help and it didn't. I haven't eaten gas causing foods (like broccoli), and I haven't eaten anything with majorly strong flavors like onions or garlic, but he's completely rejecting my breast milk. I am on two medications that I cannot stop taking that are supposed to be safe during breast feeding (Zyrtec and levothyroxine). I'm going to ask his pediatrician at his two week check up next week, but I'd like some insight on why this is happening if anyone has an idea.
