    Have you tried anything like infacol or gripe water for gas pains/colic?

    My DS arches his back and roots around like he's hungry when he needs to get a burp or fart out. You could try the above before each feed to see if it helps or try burping longer or bicycle legs. Or all three! it can't hurt to try one of the above, although I know there's a specific brand to try in case he has reflux as well. Infants friend? One if the reflux girls can advise.

    What did the GP say about reflux?

    Yes it's true that some babies will settle better on formula constantly because it keeps them fuller longer. I was that baby for my mother and ended up bottle fed because she had no support to demand feed me.
    If baby is growing and you have enough milk it's a bit sad to stop just cos the first few months are hard. Just my thoughts.
    Some babies are just gassy. They do grow out of it around 4 months usually if not before.
    My 4th I had a hard time with gas and eczema until he was around 5 months. I found acidic food bothered him most.
    It will send you crazy trying to eliminate foods, I suggest everything healthy in moderation is good if mum and baby are both well. I've been there and about ripped my hair out. My babies were growing great just gassy.

    As Holly suggested, infants friend can help. I've used it for a few of mine. The brauers stuff seemed to work too though I'm not sure it's still around?
    What about baby massage?

    What did the GP say about reflux?
    If bub does have silent reflux, don't use any wind treatments, they make it worse. Possibly bub has a wheat intolerance?

    What formula is he on? If he's on the Nan HA, it could explain things. The milk protein is broken down more than regular formulas and dairy in breast milk.

    He sometimes arches his back when he's crying, but I was told that they also sometimes do that when they are overtired.

    Ill look more into lactose intolerance, thanks!

    If he has lactose intolerance his little poop hole would be "burnt" looking as it's the sugar they can't digest. Are you sure he doesn't have a cows milk protein intolerance? And I found out that babies with silent reflux stretch and arch their necks and back to elongate their oesophagus to ease the pain.

    There's different types of lactose intolerance. A general milk intolerance (which is more far reaching and results in pain from all lactose) and an intolerance to dairy products in breast milk, which is very common in babies and is more a result of a developing gut. My DS had the latter and once I cut dairy from my diet he improved. I also cut soicy food, onions, tomatoes and chocolate (that was a killer).

    Wow 27 days. You're doing an amazing job. The first 6 weeks can be really tough. Hang in there.
