if it's colic or even a reflux thing it could be that he needs elevating after feeds (is it always after feeds that he kicks off?) you say he settles on you as long as he's up right?
Google baby reflux...I don't know too much about it tbh.. but the hv may be able to recommend something.

It might be silent reflux - I thought Frankie had that at one point. I would go to the dr and try to get some diagnosis if it sounds like its reflux, as they can perscribe gaviscon to help him.
With the straining it could be trapped wind, Frankie had this and it might be worth trying some different winding positions, making sure that you're feeding him in an upright position. To be honest the only thing that has really helped Frankie is colief - this helps babies digest the lactose in milk. (To be honest gripe water seemed to help but Frankie wouldn't take it from a pipette and spat it everywhere)

One of the best techniques is to schedule the child's naps and stick to the schedule. It's usually ideal to have 3-4 quick naps during the day time and if possible, try to keep the child awake during the late hours of the afternoon so that he can sleep early at night.
