His stomach is constantly bubbling and churning. He's constantly passing gas and wiggling around until the gas comes out, and would suddenly cry out in pain. The Dr said that its not so common for a breastmilk baby to get colic to that extent so we were discussing the possible causes. The Dr also asked if I had added anything new to my diet, but I haven't. He was like this for a month and I didn't eat anything different or out of the ordinary for me during that month. I took her advice, (since he was intolerant to the regular formula before my breastmilk came in) and I stopped eating dairy. Just like the ladies above mentioned, it did take a few weeks to finally notice a difference, but low and behold things changed drastically, not completely, but I'd say at least a 70% improvement. In fact to add to my suspicions that it was dairy, over the weekend I gave in and ate a few things while we were visiting family that had dairy in it, and boom the symptoms were a lot worse again. So I just have to make sacrifices while I'm breastfeeding him stop eating dairy for a while. So many people have told me that they would've just put him on formula to avoid all of this hassle, but I'm determined to make it work for a least a few more months. I want to keep him on breastmilk until he's at least 6 months old, maybe longer if I can handle it.

Good for you LeeAnn! I personally KNOW how hard it is to make those dietary changes, but they made such a difference for Hope too that it is totally worth the effort. Some of our babies just have very sensitive tummies and digestive systems. I too, tried a little dairy at one point to make sure that it was effecting Hope, and sure enough- it was very clear eating dairy would effect her. I am right there with you girl!

If you do cut out dairy or something else and it helps you can always add it back in later. Babies who are sensitive to these thing tend to outgrow it so you can slowly add it back in after a few months and if it upsets him still just wait a bit longer to add it all back in.

Oh Heidi, it must be REALLY hard for you, since you are a vegetarian too. You are having to pretty much eat like a vegan, huh? Its kindof nice to know that someone else on here can relate to me when it comes to this.

Imagine- thanks for input. I will definitely keep that in mind and hopefully I might be able to slowly introduce it back into my diet later.
