Sounds like it may be acid reflux. Are you BF or formula feeding (I am not against either) But it could be something that you're eating that is effecting his belly or a switch in formula may help. Our son has pretty severe acid reflux and we have been dealing with it for the last 5.5 months (he'll be 6 months old on Saturday). Once the doctor diagnosed it, we did all the traditional methods of helping it including holding him upright during feedings, limiting movement and holding him upright for at least 30 minutes after a feeding, and using gas drops in his bottles to reduce bubbles. We also tried Zantac and it was not strong enough. He is now on Prevacid 7.5 mg 2x a day for the acid and Bethanechol to help keep his stomach contents down. We also switch to Similiac Sensitive RS since it's a little heavier. All of this has worked great.. There is no magic cure for acid reflux though.. we still have good days and bad days! GL!
