He's had bad gas issues from almost day 1 so we've been using Mylcon drops and it's worked great. We've also discussed his bad gas issues with his doctor.
My problem is:
DS goes to sleep around 8'ish for the night, sleeps 4-5 hours, then wakes. I BF, give good burps, Mylicon drops (everything we do throughout the day), and then 1-2 hours after that nursing without fail DS will start worming around, grunting, whining, eventually crying until we get to him because he has gas. I know it is gas because he will pass it and continue to pass gas for quite some time. Then for the rest of the morning he will worm around, grunt, and struggle to pass gas, all while still asleep until morning. In the mean time, we don't sleep because we either have to put him in bed with us and he keeps us up, or we keep him in his bassinet and have to keep handing him his pacifier, which usually calms him for 10-20 minutes before he spits it out, cries in pain, and we have to give him his pacifier and comfort him. Then in the morning, he's fine, even for day time naps he's fine.
I just don't know what's going on, it happens every night. Even if he poops before he goes back to sleep after his night feeding, he still wakes this way 1-2 hours later.
We prop him up on a boppy lounger to help keep him elevated (gassy kids use this method, too, not just reflux) so I'm not sure why he does this. Any ideas to this mystery?
Side note: I cut out dairy products, have kept a food journal, and for a few days ate very bland food... no difference.
