I know Ive talked (whined...) about this before on the board... but i could really use some advice and not getting it else where. DD is almost 4 weeks old and has an EXTREMELY sensitive tummy. Every night we go through the same thing where she ends up with gas/upset tummy and screams hysterically for 3-6 hours on end. It is always accompanied by lots of farting, silent refluxing, and sometimes projectile puking (out her nose and shoots for at least a foot at times), Sometimes she cries to the point where Ive almost taken her to the ER because she cant seem to catch her breath she is screaming so hard. She seems to have a lot of sensitivities to foods in my diet, but cant seem to find anything I can safely eat. So far I have eliminated wheat, dairy, cauliflower, broccoli, beans, vega/sequel naturals protein shakes, any sort of vitamin containing iron. I am a vegetarian with strong vegan tendencies. I have skipped eating anything for a full 24 hours except 1 banana and a home made gluten free vegan peach millet muffin and she was fine that night. I can do that for a couple days, but I dont tihnk it will work in the long run.
Any advice on safe foods I CAN eat? I am going nuts. I end up crying along with her because I know Im causing her so much pain and I wish I didnt have to eat so that her tummy didnt hurt.
Pediatrician said that she "will get used to your diet" but its been 4 weeks and no improvement, it only seems to get worse. Lactation consultant said that my diet doesnt affect her but I know its BS because if I eat almost nothing her symptoms improve. She is getting plenty of milk, peeing a lot, gaining weight well, so its not a problem with her not getting enough.
Currently in the middle of hour 3 of hysterical screaming/projectile puking/farting with no end in sight. Tried colic calm but she kept puking it up....
