Pain, discomfort and crying

I'm just wondering if anyone can shed any light on what's going on with my eleven week old. The past five days or so she has been crying much more than usual which seems to be linked to her back end. I can hear her tummy gurgling a lot as if the intestines have a lot of work to do. It seems like she wants to poo/trump but can't relax enough to do it.

Even when she's asleep she suddenly wakes in tears and has always wriggled a lot in her sleep. She's also been chewing her hands a lot but my thoughts are that she has just learned that they are there to chew on whenever she feels like it. She normally sleeps pretty well only waking for one night feed but last night about three or four times and twice tonight so far.

She's also possetting a little more than usual. Her poos are very loose but not too much more than usual other than a bit of liquid at the end.

She's on nutramigen for cows milk allergy and also breastfed. I'm on a dairy free diet and stick to it religiously.

I obviously can't get to the GP as its the weekend but whenever I take her they always just seem to say that if she's feeding, wetting her nappy and doesn't have a temperature she's fine.

Can anyone shed any light on what the problem could be, how to relieve it and any similar experiences?

It could just be normal but have you considered giving up soya too?

My DD didn't tolerate the nutramigen, there are other brands and other types of formula with even less dairy in. She now has neocate. Have you seen a dietician? They might be able to help find a milk that works for your DD.

Also, like jilted mentioned quite a few babies who are are allergic to milk protein (rather than lactose intolerant) are also allergic to soya. Perhaps you could talk to your GP/dietician about that being a possibility?

Thanks for the replies. I didn't think about soya. She's due to go for her second injections soon so I will ask about it then.
