  • I'd have them contact his pediatrician for options.

  • Is he breastfed or formula fed? If it's formula, he could be sensitive to the type of formula he's being given. Perhaps he needs to be switched to a soy-based type... it's definitely something I could consult a pediatrician about.

  • Maybe switch to another brand of soy-based formula.

  • Try gripe water, It's an herbal sup. for the same symptoms. It works great for my son and his acid reflux when the drops do nothing.
