  • the mylicon drops will help a lot. And I would talk to the doctor with a baby that young. If your formula feeding it could be the formula.

  • You definitely need to take him to the pediatrician to see if maybe it's his formula and I agree with ashtonjames and Mrs.Owen86 on the mylicon drops. They helped my little one alot with gas. I use to give my little boy just a little bit of juice and water mixed together. I think he was older though, along the lines of 3 months or so. Of course it was mixed more water then juice but I would ask you pedi first before giving him water or anything like that.

  • Mylicon or Simethicone the generic brand will help him with the gas, gripe water, if he is constipated take his temp rectally that will open his bottom so he can make a bm. Give him a massage to ease his pain.
