Hours of crying..mainly of an evening..please help!
We're really struggling with our LO at the moment. For the past few weeks has gone from a very contented baby to one that just wont settle and gets very upset. It seemed that she had trapped wind so we tried her with infacol which seemed to help for a short period but she eventually got worse. The crying has gone from maybe 1 hour to 5/6 hours every evening.
We have recently been to the docs and she gave us colief which she has now been taking for 4 days with no improvement. My doc said if it didn't work try using another formula with no lactose in it.
However after a really bad night I rang the docs to see how quickly the colief should work and I spoke to another doc, not my usual one, and he said to give it a few days and if no improvement try another formula but not one that is lactose free just yet as she has to build up her tolerance to it and if we take it away now she may never have tolerance for it!
So I really dont know what to do now. She is on Cow and gate at the mo so I was thinking of switching to aptamil but do I then carry on with the colief or do I try something else like gripe water or dentinox??
When she cries she has real tears and her legs kick like mad and she arches her back. We're really struggling to comfort her and its awful..please help!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks Jo and Niamh (7 weeks) xx
