I'm so glad you found an answer!! Cutting out dairy has been a life saver to me and I've lost weight from it! When you can't have creamy, fatty things that have dairy in it, you definitely end up cutting calories!! I cook with rice milk and don't even notice the difference. I get my coffee with vanilla almond milk - it has a delicious flavor. For butter I use Earth Balance - a great tasting non-dairy butter. I did a bunch of soy milk, etc initially but found out that a large chunk of babies with milk allergies have soy allergies too! When I cut out the soy, I found my son was totally happy!
At some point, you may want to visit an allergist to determine if he has a dairy allergy. My daughter was allergic to dairy and spit up constantly. Turned out she also had a severe nut allergy that we found out without her getting exposed.
It could be something you are eating. Is he going to the bathroom enough? Constipation made my son very fussy when he was a baby (he doesn't have that problem anymore now that he is a year old).
