My little girl has been gassy since the day she was born. These last few days have been really bad. The past three nights she wont let me lay her down and even if I am holding her she wakes up in under an hour. The days are rough but not nearly as bad as the nights. Sometimes it is so hard to get her to sleep (she will stay awake for 6 + hours) because she is in pain. I have tried holding her knees to her chest, warm baths with washcloth on the belly (which helps for about 10 minutes), she doesn't sleep laying flat. I am not sure what else to try. Anyone have any ideas of things to try? Oh i guess I should add she is breastfed only.

I would get her gas drops. But then look at your diet, eliminating dairy would probably help. Good luck mama

Try cutting dairy out of your diet. Give it a couple weeks. If that doesn't help, then also cut out wheat.

Have you asked her pediatrician? Sorry you're having this problem. I know Leif was pretty gassy and gas drops helped him. Hope the best momma!

Gas drops and gripe water help us immensely. Without them, Lena screams pretty much nonstop. They don't eliminate the problem, but they help a lot.

Have you tried the "I love you" massage? I haven't needed it, but I know people that swear by it.
This link says anti-colic, but I've always just heard it's for gas or constipation. Plus the view isn't too good on this first one.

Here's one that's longer and better view.

We're dealing with the exact same thing. I'm suspecting a dairy intolerance, especially since her poop has recently turned mucousy and slightly green...both signs of dairy intolerance. If you decide to eliminate things from your diet, make sure you do so for at least 3 weeks, as it can take that long to get out of your system and then out of baby's system. You should see improvement sooner though. Good luck.

Gas drops seriously save my life sometimes with Gray. He screams from gas but they really help. Also when he is having gas, I will lay him on his tummy for a little bit. I think the pressure helps it feel better until he can pass it.
