Cramping or not

My daughter is 9 weeks old, she still feeds every 1.5 to 2 hours at night and practicly every hour sometimes in the day. I have a lot of milk. It seems like she''s cramping and battling to get her tummy going, but once she did her business it looks normal. I have tried everything (drops/grape water/Cholix etc) and nothing seems to eese the pain this poor child is going thru. A Dr. told me she is lactose intolerant, shouldn''t I be giving her then lactose free / soy milk. After 9 weeks I can not sit by and look at my child hurting..... Please advise !

The most likely reason for your baby's cramps is that she has a problem with infant colic. Try her on a colic medicine such as Bennet's Colic Remedy. Make sure that you wind her very well after each feed.If this does not help you will need to express your breastmilk and add Colief drops to your breastmilk and feed her this treated breastmilk by bottle.

When is she cramping  before or after feeds?

As she feeds so regular it can also be that she has stomach ache because of too much milk in her tummy.

If she cries before next feed, maybe she is hungry  if she cries after feeding she is probably over-feeding.
