Im now formula feeding with Similac Sensitive. It looks like we might be staying with it.
BF was going good but due to nothing working for her fussiness I stopped to see if the formula helped. She is getting better I think so guessing she has a problem with lactose in my milk so I probably wont be going back.
Sucks since Ill be throwing out weeks worth of milk in the freezer.

Did you ever try removing milk from your diet?

I'm glad she's doing better on formula!

Formula feeding now as well since Sophia was having major issues with my milk. I also have a freezer full of expressed milk. Katie have you tried to see if there is a hospital or group that accepts donated breast milk in your area???

Glad she is doing better Katie
FYI: I had to remove ALL dairy and wheat from my diet while bf my last two. It stunk on my end, with how limited I was on what I could eat. But, for me it was worth it. Not sure if that would be an option for you, but thought I'd throw it out there that it worked for me. In my case though, my babies weren't in pain, like Samantha is. They both had green slimy poops with blood in it. I never figured out if it was the dairy in my diet or the wheat or both (I cut them both at the same time), but shortly after cutting them from my diet my babies symptoms went away.
Weird thing was when I started them on cows milk at 1 year, they were both fine. Go figure!

But again, I am glad Samantha is feeling better

There are some pretty neat no wheat options now,,. Especially with sweets and baked good!
Even with no dairy... There's coconut milk, almond milk, rice milk and icky soy milk (lol).

Rilynn is growing like a weed on breast milk.
I'm purposefully not eating dairy, the few times I did, she spit up.

Starting tomorrow I'm eliminating grains too, so no wheat or gluten for me!

We are nursing and doing great! I think spicy stuff upsets her tummy. Last night I had some queso (my hubby made it spicier than normal), and she puked allll down my back and front of me. Then spit up most of the night. Today has been better.

Caleb gets EBM. He nurses about 60% of the time and then gets expressed milk the rest. He's growing like a weed, so I guess things are going well

Breastfeeding over here. Ack - I can't imagine throwing out all that milk! As an EBM...that's like sacrilege. I completely understand - but man my frozen stash is my rock.

Going good...apart from a stupid clogged duct making me feel like el poopo.

Breastfeeding is going pretty good. Gets a little frustrating at times when he seems to want to be constantly latched on.

I wouldnt know where to start so I guess I can call the hospital. I hate to throw it out.

I hate to say it but I dont think I could and this is easier. I'm kind of a picky eater and I have reflux and GERD issues myself so I have to be careful of some stuff. Formula I think is just easier and I dont think I could take her symptoms hanging around while I give it the few weeks to try & see.

We are breastfeeding and aside from feeling like a walking boob, it's going pretty well. Tomato products are a big no, and cabbage... But otherwise doing well!

For those BFing with fussy babies, it's actually very rare for a baby to be lactose intolerant.

http://kellymom.com/health/baby-heal...ivity/#lactose

http://kellymom.com/health/baby-heal...e-intolerance/

Usually it is due to a food intolerance, most common being dairy protein, which is why most babies who are fussy when moms eat dairy when they newborns can drink cows milk when they are a year old. It's just when they are little that their tummies can't handle it. Many moms I know that have to go dairy free only have to do it for about 3-6 mos, sometimes a year but not always, until the baby's digestive system develops more.

http://kellymom.com/health/baby-heal...d-sensitivity/

Just trying to throw out suggestions for those who are switching to formula due to fussiness!

Anyways, we are EBFing and hope to for as long as he wants to (planning on letting him self-wean). Everything is going great. He's a bit fussy here and there but just normal baby fussiness, I think he just went through a growth spurt...

Breastfeeding. We're having big issues with gassiness/fussiness as well. I have issues with forceful letdown along with over supply. We have been working on it for sometime now with little improvement. I also just started cutting out dairy to see if that will help. I really hope it works because she seems like it's causing her so much pain somedays I wonder if it's worth it to be putting her through this or if I should just switch to formula myself.....
