  • Try Baby's Bliss Gripe Water...they sell it at Walgreens, pharmacies, Walmart, Target, etc.

  • Are you combo feeding or just formula? We had to use Alimentum with my first child but I was combo feeding and switched to just bf - it was so expensive. Is the baby on solid foods too?

  • Did you try bicycling his legs? It sounds crazy, but my DR had me gently bend the babies legs at the knees and raise them to his chest. That helped relieve the gas for then.
    Has he been on other formula? It may take a little while to clear up.
    I would also suggest Mylicon, or the Soothing Naturals Tummy Soothers.

    They worked for my babies. Best of luck!
