  • have you found "gripe water"....? Really I just use position to help move the air around the corners...5 mins on one side...the 5 on the other side..back and forth. Is he a hard burper? you might try changing from a powder to a liquid formula...I know the price is way different...but some kids just handle the liquid better (it is made differently).

  • what kind of milk is he using? you can try and go online to the company that makes it... I have my daughter on nutramigen and I order cases at a time through walmart at the guest service desk! because they don't keep the liquid cans stocked good... powder is so bad for babies.. my doctor for both my kids said never use powder it just messes their little systems up and it clumps in their systems causing constipation (sp?)
