It can take 6 weeks for dairy to fully clear out of their system, so I’d stick with it. The protein in soy is very similar , so I’d cut that out too. I’d probably get a second opinion too. Good luck!!

Have you tried keeping a food diary and seeing how your diet corresponds with baby’s symptoms and bowel motions? And has baby been checked for tongue or lip tie? You might also want to chat with an IBCLC to get baby’s latch evaluated.

I thought it was gas with my son too but it ended up being reflux. It was silent so he never spit up and we didn’t know how much pain he was in. Try the meds, they helped us so much. Also, make sure you are giving her the right amount, it’s by weight so the dosage has to be adjusted constantly since they’re growing so much.

Try sitting her up more, and angling her just a bit to sleep. 

My son did the same thing for about 6 weeks from 3.5-5ish. When he was at angle, he almost stopped. I’m thinking it was more reflux than bowel movement. 

I didn’t change anything I was eating when I noticed the angle helped him. I definitely wouldn’t have entertained weaning him without exhausting all other options. I would get a second opinion.
