I often urge moms to listen to their gut instincts - following what you know is really important when parenting.

Your point about doctors being wrong is well taken. I think the whole approach to crying babies has changed - we don't dismiss it as "colic" and we don't dismiss colic as "just colic." I read that the average adult can tolerate a newborn cry for less than 2 minutes before they get aggitated and upset themselves. Imagine if your baby cried for more than 8 hours a day?!

As a lactation specialist, I usually have moms keep food diaries as well as baby behaviorial diaries. It makes it much easier for us to spot the connections. Food allergies are much better understood and identified now - as is reflux. And we have more treatments.

I'm glad you figured out what was going on with your child. It certainly sounds like you had to be persistent.
