Expert Q&A: Crying and Colic

If it doesn’t seem like colic but my baby is still fussy, can how I feed my baby to make a difference?

Babies can be fussy whether they breastfeed or bottle-feed. If you breastfeed, caffeine or dairy products in your diet may irritate your baby's stomach. On the other hand, milk protein in baby formula can cause tummy distress in the early weeks of life. If you want to limit foods in your diet or make other feeding changes, discuss it with your pediatrician.
