I have a 15 week old baby. He cries all day between feeds

This answer was rated:

I have a 15 week old baby. He cries all day between feeds and naps but generally sleeps very well at night. My Doctor suspected cows milk protein allergy so I cut all dairy from my diet and he did seem to improve slightly. We were then put on a hydrolysed formula which seemed to make things much worse again. I stopped that and we have now been given a dairy free formula. He has been on that since Tuesday this week but he still continues to cry all day. Things feel like they are getting worse. Is it normal to still cry this much at this age? Thank you.

have you tried reflux medicine?

Tried gaviscon but that didn’t help.

I would try zantac

it works much much better

ask the pediatrician to try it

My son had the same thing and this was the fix
