See your Gp for advice, arching back with crying is usually a sign of reflux or cows milk allergy

I should have explained this better.......
She is on aptamil follow on milk and doesn't seem to have a problem with that....
But in the afternoons(round about lunch time) she starts to cry a lot and either arch her back or stretch out...
can't do tummy time as she just cries ☹️
She's such a happy baby most of the time until what ever this is starts to annoy her!!
Could this be reflux?
It can't be milk allergy cos there's no other symptoms!

What is she having for lunch? It could also just be frustration/boredom/tiredness at this age.

Mine did this and it was reflux and milk allergy, which he had to about 5 then grew out of. I stopped breastfeeding and switched to non cows milk formula when we realised at about 6 months and the back arching stopped.

Mine did this and she was diagnosed as CMPA.

Sounds exactly the same as mine with cmpa.

She has fruit and vegetables for lunch or a jar which doesn't have milk in them.
Even when in buggy she pushes her chest out sometimes..

If it's milk allergy it won't necessarily be just after she's ingested milk, the reaction can be up to 3 days after she's had it.
