4 months old. Kicking and pulling legs up to chest, nose stuffy and runny. What is happening?

Hi my daughter is just under 4months old and has been kicking and pulling her legs up to her chest during feeding like she s in pain. She s been spitting up a lot and will cry out of no where sometimes not even take the bottle. Her eyes have also been really goopy and her nose is all stuffy and runny. I checked her temp and it was 95.6. I m stuck on what can be upsetting her.

baby can not tell her problem, They are expressed there problem with some activities,

Kicking and pulling legs up to chest - Its indicate colic pain (Pain in abdomen), may be that is why she is crying.

nose stuffy and runny: Common cold is common in this period, It is normal for her age.

Spitting- may be due to over feed,excessive swallowed air, loose esophageal wall- it take time become normal.

I would advice:
watch for weight , she should be gaining 200mg in 4 week
For colic pain you have to consult with your pediatrician, after physical examination he will proscribe appropriate antispasmodic drop.
For runny nose stem inhalation with precaution.
Keep baby warm.
Exclusively breast feeding,
After each feeding burping ( For removal of swallowed air holding of baby erect over mothers shoulder or making him sit in mother lap and then patting or rubbing his back so that he eructates the swallowed air) Failure to do so may cause regurgitation, vomiting,and even abdominal pain/ colic pain.
