My lo was alot better when i cut out dairy. Colief helps break down lactose so thats good you can get from chemist. My lo now has a problem with dairy so was obviosly the problem for us. Dont worry to often how much feeding my lo used to feed every 20 minutes to every hour till 4 months.

colief did nothing for us tbh.

I will mention silent reflux - i have a sloping crib mattress as she just won't sleep flat so it has been at the back of my mind.

I wouldn't worry about the frequency of her feeds if she didn't eat so much, but it's hard not to worry about feeding every 20mins / 1 hour when you know she's eaten 7 oz and has a distended stomach with pain....I try to hope she goes at least 90 minutes between feeds during the day, though she naturally clusters more than that in the evening to prep for her night sleep.

I found good old fashioned gripe water worked wonders for my LO when her colic was really bad, we tried infacol and dentinox too but both were rubbish, I'd give her 5ml before her feed and then when she started fussing after feeding I'd pop her in the baby carrier and do stuff around the house, combination of the two stopped the screaming!

I had the exact same problem with my lo, yes an ounce of cooled boiled water a day works wonders!!, does no harm what so ever, also if it's not reflux try putting lo on their belly for a while after a feed it also helps like magic!!, a 250ml of dentinox colic drops in the Dr brown bottle feed will work with you. When burping always put over your shoulder it presses on their stomach and forces all air trapped to escape note that babies suffering from colic may want to feed all day at they don't feel full with it! Your case will be hard with breast feeding tho so there's more tips to try, but if doesn't get any better I would defiantly seek more serious medical attention as their may be a worse cause for her abdominal pain x
Hope this helps

Thanks but this is an old post - my LO has since been diagnosed with a milk allergy and that was the cause.
I'm now going through similar with baby number two!
