When she poops, it's greenish, runny, and just keeps coming out. She's just not looking very happy.
Her appetite is fine, she's been having wet diapers and several poops a day (5-6 min.)
Any ideas how I can help her or what's wrong?
Sounds like my baby when he was little. He ended up going through a very fussy period that may or may not have been colic. I didn't really know about colic at that time so I just kept going along!! Some things that helped us.....reducing dairy products and obvious gas producers, using a position that helped expel gas, tummy massage and lots of bouncing. The position I am referring to is like this:-- you put baby on your arm, belly down, with her head near the crook of your elbow. This positions the 'heel' of your hand on the top of her tummy. You apply gentle pressure on the top of the tummy. You elevate her rear end slightly to help the gas rise. You rock back and forth gently to soothe her. Lots of gas can get expelled this way. I'll see if I can find a photo of this anywhere!
They do the football hold in reverse of what I did. I would hold the baby the other way, head toward my elbow.
I corrected it with block feeding
also neither could tolerate dairy in my diet until they were around 6 months old.
Been there, it's awful....good luck!
