Intersting enough I was not aware that there was corn in the nutramigen. I would think that corn is even harder on the belly then cow's milk. Now I really want to explore that prescription formula. I bet that's the problem. See Katelyn is not colic at all, she is a very happy little baby. Honestly you wouldn't ever know that there was something going on until you changed her diaper. I'm sorry you had such a hard time,but am glad to hear that you finally figured it out.
That's great that she's so happy!
You can always see the GI and not get the scope done. Remember you are the parent and you can say yes or no. That's one thing we learned the hard way with my dd.
Unfortunately the prescription formula is so, so nasty that most kids end up with a temporary feeding tube because they won't drink it. So hopefully you can find other options first. Usually kids on this formula are diagnosed with e.e. You can google it if you want.
I don't want to question why she's getting formula in the first place and not breastmilk becuase I know we all have our stories. I myself did not nurse my dd's but I was able to pump milk for a time. I am wondering if you would be able and willing to relactate if you can't find a formula for her.
