Well just in case you haven't heard it said, i have been told by several health professionals that if one or both the parents are the 'allergic' type, then their children are more likely to be. Both DH & I have allergies/intolerances, and both our kids have it too.
I would suggest that if your husband is LI, then you giving up dairy and/or soy for a month or 6 weeks would be a good starting point. I'm no expert but i have read it several times on here that it takes 2 weeks for the dairy to clear your system and another 2 for it to clear your baby's system, so it can take up to 4 weeks before you see any difference.
Whatever you decide to do, i hope things get easier for you real soon, and if you decide to go dairy free, i'm happy to help out with menu suggestions and some nice treat recipes (I have a KILLER chocolate brownie recipe ) Just PM me if you need anything

Do you feed on one breast per feed or do you do two? If you have a lot of milk I'd suggest feeding one breast each feed. Bubs might be getting too much foremilk. Which would cause the gassiness and not becoming full.
I had the same probs with DD also thought it was allergies (had mucuosy poo too etc)
I feed DD one breast for two hours as in use that one breast whenever she needs to feed in a two hour span.

I'd also recommend either a lactation consultant or a breastfeeding clinic to check your DD's latch, just in case. I thought my DS was feeding well because he stayed on for ages, but turns out he wasn't sucking properly, and was burning more energy from constant sucking then he was getting from the milk. Banging head and snorting sounds like hungry to me.
Good luck. Get as much help as you can... it will pass, as hard as it seems right now.

Goodluck, I'd say 7 days would be a bit early to go looking at medical problems (though always best to get them checked by a professional) their gut take a lil while to get used to milk...

My mum was always telling me that newborn bubs need to be burped for quite a while after a feed. Sometimes it'd take 30mins of holding DD upright at my shoulder. It gets easier.
Look up Harvey Karp's "happiest baby on the block" on YouTube. His settling techniques helped us a lot. Especially the shooshing!
Also a dummy works wonders. I resisted for 2 weeks because the books say they're bad but they've been great for DD!
