Lately my 7 week old has been having some issues. He'll be happily nursing for a while and then just pop off and start screaming like he's in pain. I'm wondering if its just gas or possibly reflux but I don't know to tell. He does gulp down some air when he first gets started and is a very gassy baby always burping and farting. Gas drops seems to help sometimes and not really others, its hard to tell if they're doing anything or not. The reason I'm thinking possible silent reflux is sometimes he does the back arch and sometimes a little while after eating he makes like a little gag sound and then starts screaming. He spits up but not very often at all, like maybe once or twice a week. He has a weight check apt tomorrow so I plan on talking to the doc because he's been just miserable lately. Sometimes it'll start while he's eating like I described and other times it'll be a few minutes after. I don't want my baby to be in pain! What can I do for him?
