Sounds like gas (which can be made worse by tongue tie). Some babies confuse gas with hunger so chew their hands etc. but when it comes to swallowing it is too uncomfortable so they scream. I used drops from about 3 weeks to about 5 months with my LO as when she didn't take them she was such an unhappy baby!

That's a good point noon! Not everything that looks like reflux is actually reflux. That's the trouble with babies - there are so many possibilities and it's so difficult to narrow them down to get to the real issue!

Thanks guys! So dr did say reflux, as she arches her back a lot, and seemed so uncomfortable/in pain especially after burping or spitting up. She does seem to be feeling better now though, at least she has times of the day where she seems happy. Interesting about the fact that they confuse hunger and gas. I have recently found out that she also will eat her hands, latch, then unlatch quickly if she's just tired. Poor munchkin doesn't stay asleep very long.

I hope the reflux improves soon! It's no fun at all.

If you're open to homeopathic remedies, give nat phos 6x a try. It's cheap on Amazon, not sure if you can buy it in a store locally. Just dissolve one tablet in a tsp or so of water in the nipple of a bottle and give after feedings, up to 8 tablets a day. It worked for my baby! We did it for about a month, but I'm not sure if the symptoms of reflux went away long before that because I was slightly afraid to stop and have to start over.
