Baby unable to sleep


Q: My son is 5 months old and currently wakes every 2 hours or less during the night. He has never slept over 4 hours at a tons and has only done that on e. he wakes up crying arching his back and rising and turning which leads me to believe he's in pain. He also sppirs up alot during the day and seems to have bad gas. He is exclusively breastfed. I have tried cutting our dairy with no success as well as caffeine and soy. Should I consult a physician? He also won't sleep during the day unless he is held and had colic as a newborn. I am wondering if he could have reflxu or be sensitive to my milk.
