My daughter has been having stomach problems that became noticable around 2 weeks old and became much worse at 6 weeks old. I've been told that's common with "colic", but I just see it as my poor baby being in pain. :[ She'll be 7 weeks old on Friday. I've quit eating any and all dairy products, chocolate, onions (never ate those anyway), and am avoiding the other gassy vegetables as well. Dairy was really the only thing I was eating regularly though. Today is the start of day 3 since I quit eating dairy. I've heard it can take up to two weeks to see any change in your baby, but I'm hoping for sooner.
When did you notice a change, if you did ever notice a change? If you didn't, did anything else you did end up helping?
Who says we're "not supposed" to be drinking milk from another animal? That is just an opinion & far from the truth. Make sure you take come kind of calcium supplements, or she will suck all the calcium right out of your bones. here is some real good info on colic for breastfed babies...it might not be the dairy at all...

My son has eczema and allergy issues. We found out he is allergic to dairy, eggs, and red dye. I cut out everything that has those things in them and it took 3 or 4 weeks but it helped tremendously. My daughter had colic and reflux when I nursed her but we could never pinpoint it on any one thing. Good luck mama!!!!!!!!!
