My Mood:
Definitely sounds like reflux, which is caused by a valve which isn't fully developed yet (only aggravated by food sensitivities, if the baby has them, not caused by). I would call your pediatrician and see about getting him on an antacid. In the meantime, you can try some gripe water and/or 1mil of mylanta supreme (only the supreme kind, the others are not safe). If it is reflux, which I'd be willing to bet, you want to take care of it asap so the esophagus doesn't get permanently damaged. I went through this with both my girls and didn't get a diagnosis with my first for almost two months. It was awful.
