Im so lost. Dd is 6 weeks old. Shes been a fairly good baby, kinda fussy but overall ok. Lately though it seems shes so incredibly restless (not sleeping unless on my chest curled up or on play mat sooooo i dony sleep....ever) she constantly seems like something is bothering her stomach. She poops pretty regularly, had 2 days where she was straining so her dr had me give her 1oz of pear juice and it worked like a charm....she took a good poop! Well here we are again, she pooped really well today and yesterday so i dont think thats it. My mil suggested a little bit of rice cereal to help weigh the formula down and possibly settle her belly? Does this make sense or should i make an appt with ped? At her 4 week check up he said she was perfect and this is all new....

Maybe she's having a hard time with the formula digestion?

You are not supposed to put cereal in bottles and at 6 weeks that could cause more tummy problems.    Try putting her in her car seat to sleep.   My dd slept in hers for the first 4 months becaue she would not sleep anywhere but on me or in her seat.

Only you know your baby. Putting rice cereal in their bottles too early is related to allergies, I forget how. I can tell you that we both my kids I added rice cereal to their bottles around tha time and they did fine.

 My baby around that time started getting fussy and not sleeping well. I took dairy out of my diet and she does much better. She still likes to fall asleep next to me though and then I lay her down in her bassinet. I didn't know babies could have juice at 6 weeks and I'm not sure about the cereal. I heard that was only for reflux if they're spitting up a lot. Babies go through stages and their body is figuring things out.
