Get the DVD, book, or just google "The Happiest Baby on the Block" - it teaches a soothing technique that helped so much with my son. Yes, cutting out dairy sometimes helps. "Bicycling" the baby's legs helps move things around as well. Some moms swear by gripe water. See if friends or family members can help her soothe the baby during those hours to give the new mama a break.
My son was a more extreme base - he could not handle my breastmilk, soy-based formula or milk-based formula. He also had GERD/reflux. He had to take Nutramigen (hypo allergenic stuff, $$$) and zantac, and we used Mylicon all the time. To help her trouble shoot -- Does the baby spit up A LOT? Does the baby seem to be uncomfortable ALL DAY? Does baby sleep much? Does baby poop on a regular basis? Good luck! Message me if you like.
