Re: Screaming after nursing... :( Help??

The back arching and clawing is a sign of reflux which is often caused by food allergies. Likely the reason you don't see much change in his behavior is that it can take 2-6 weeks to clear allergens from your system. You can either go extreme with the Total Elimination Diet OR make your own total elimination diet by setting up a set of meals that you will eat every day for 2 whole weeks. The key to that would be to minimize the number of allergens you are exposed to. Gas should not be painful, and it isn't, as long as the food causing the gas isn't also causing irritation to the stomach lining and intestines.
