My baby is 1 month old and seems very happy. He isn't a fussy baby, he doesn't spit up much, and he doesn't even burp that much, when he fusses I nurse him and that always makes him happy. He nurses every hour and half much of the day and night, sometimes more often, and then with a few longer stretches during naps or the first part of the night. This all seems pretty typical to me.
He does grunt a lot while sleeping, in fact many nights both DH and I wake up thinking he is fussing and he isn't even awake, he is just making a ton of grunting noises (he does not appear to be straining like trying to poop, he just makes the noises). When he does poop its typical mustard/seedy poop and he has started having them only once a day (he skipped yesterday), which again seems typical for his age.
I just thought he was a noisy sleeper (both of my sister's babies grunted like this in their sleep as well, we just thought they were noisy sleepers), but today the pediatrician heard him grunt and asked if he did it in his sleep and I said yes a lot. She says this is from a food sensitivity (something in my diet) and suggested that I remove tomotoes (including sauces), broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, strawberries, etc. and if he is still grunting that I remove all dairy.
I am just wondering anyone else's experience with a grunting newborn as the only symptom and possible food sensitivity.
