There is probably already a post regarding this topic but I'm doing this before DS2 wakes up so I will post a new topic.
DS2 is 12 days old and exclusively breastfed. He has the most excruciating abdominal pain usually at night but it has come and gone all hours of the day. He is rarely settled and cries/ screams constantly. I have been on a lactose free diet since day 4 and it hasn't made any difference to his pains. I was reluctant to agree it was gas pain as he seems to pass gas/ burp easily. I went to the doctor and she wouldn't listen to a word I said as he was settled when we visited. Her advice was that he is just getting used to the breast milk!. I have heard that breast feeding is much better for their tummys but DS2 seems in worse pain then DS1 and he was only on formula!. Any advice would be much appreciated! DH goes back to night shift soon and I'm freaking out at the thought of not having help at night.
