She's crying 65% of the day

My (almost) 2mo old daughter is having really bad gas and she wont stop crying, shes been using the same formula (similac advance) and same bottles (ventaire advanced) and she hasnt had any problems til now. I am using Mylicon drops but they dont seem to be helping much. She pulls her legs up to her stomach and starts crying- theres no soothing her! Im calling her pediatrician in the morning but for now what in the world do I do?

  • Stop using Mylicon first of all, it has been recalled. She may be colic, and call your pedi now instead of the morning to just be on the safe side.

  • Mylicon has been recalled?
    Its 10 pm, I can't call her pediatrician right now- I'm just going to get an on-call nurse tell me to call and make an app. in the morning

  • I used to lay my daughter across my tummy-- tummy to tummy-- and rub her back. It seemed to help some. I feel for you! Nothing else in the world feels as helpless as having a crying infant you can't seem to help.

  • put a towel on top of the dryer, let it run a little until the towel is warm, and then lay her on it. Laying her on her belly works the fastest, but the back works also. Good luck.
