My son is 7 weeks old and ever since I've brought him home from the hospital he has been a gassy fussy baby, I have been breast feeding and supplementing ever since he was born. He started off with Enfemil Premium Lipil, then the doctor switched him to Enfemil Gentlease, and then out of the blue on Tuesday he started to get REALLY bad...crying very hard, tightening his legs...I know he has gas and is constipated! I called the doctor, and he switched him to Prosobee (soy) and he's been drinking that since Thursday, and no change! I've also used Mylacon and had to resort to Glicerin supposotories. Help! What is wrong? Is this normal? And what can I do to get rid of this? And how long will it last?Answer Question

Try bicycling his legs and burp frequently. Anyway that you can try to increase the breast feeding and decrease the formula? BM is easier to digest. What about your diet? What you eat can pass through BM. Are his stools constipated and hard for him to pass? many kids experience this-

My DD was the SAME way bicycling his legs and burping frequently, also when you are feeding him burp him ever ounce and when he is all done eating keep him up right for 30-45 minutes don't allow him to lay flat even if he is sleeping hold him up right. He will get better my DD is 2 and she still has problems at time depending on what she eats sometime things will cause her a problem and then that same thing will not cause any problems. My DD has acid reflux and they told us that after we brought her to a GI specialist. It will get better I promise. Ask his doctor to be referred to a GI specialist.
