Hi. My name's Tammi and I'm 22 years old. I just had a little girl, and she won't stop crying. After I feed her she screams and fusses. I don't know if she's in pain, but the cry has this kind of strained screamy sound to it, and the more she cries the more she seems to hurt and the louder she gets. She doesn't sleep because of it and I don't know what to do. I'm a first time mom. Please help me.
If you don't know the answer, please publish this question. Thanks.

I think I know what's wrong. Your baby sounds like a colic. I know the cry. I've worked with infants ever since I was twelve. There's something you can put in her milk that will ease the gas, but I'm not sure what.
However, there's also something else you can do. If you havn't switched around her formula, do that. It might be the formula. Have her drink more water, and thirty minutes after her meal, give her saline drops. That helps.
As for why she cries, when crying your daughter is inhaling more gas which just makes the painful pressure worse. You may even need to put her on soy milk. Talk to her doctor, and he/she might tell you the same. They also may know more. I'm only going by what I know.
