It's really hard to tell whether your baby is reacting to something in the breastmilk. A lot of symptoms look like classic colic, but exemplified. Instead of your baby crying two to three hours everyday, my baby was crying six to ten hours every day. The only thing I could do to console him was to bounce him in this chair. He was basically in a catatonic state. He had a distended stomach that was very hard and gassy. He had mucus in his stool. He had a rash on his cheek. As a second time mother, I knew in my heart that this was not normal. When the doctor said it was colic, I knew it had to be more.
