Oh boy, it could be the dairy too. Could you go dairy free for a couple of weeks? This would give you enough time to confirm if it's dairy or not(you should visit the allergies forum, lots of nursing moms there, with a ton of knowledge). Also, babies do become efficient nursers as they get older. Both my guys were very efficient nursers and never nursed more than 5 minutes. Watchng the diapers is the surest way to know if your baby is getting enough.
Do you feel a letdown either way?

Here's a couple of great links to help you identify the problem: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...e-nursing.html http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...n-nursing.html How frequently does he nurse/ or get a bottle in a 24 hour period?

Sometimes he'll choke when he hasn't even really gotten any milk!

I am neither Jewish nor Muslim, but I was raised as a Baha'i and we were raised to believe that there is a succession of prophets for each age, so Muhammed would be the prophet after Jesus. Baha'i's are also a Judeo-Christian religion so, they accept all previous propehts, but also believe the Bab and Baha'u'llah were prophets as well.
Sounds like a bottle preference(which can also cause gas, especially if they drink it fast). You need to find ways to feed him until you can get him at the breast. Some suggestions would be an SNS, Lact-aid, or a soft cup feeder. The issue with bottles is that the milk comes so fast, they prefer that and they can't get it to flow that fast from the breast so they get frustrated. When he does nurse, do you here any clicking sounds? I think a nurse-in would be a...

There was a movie with Uma Thurman and she started dating a guy whose mom happened to be her therapist, and everytime the guy imagined his grandma catching him at something, she would hit herself in the head with a frying pan.
