  • First bring him to the doctor. To see if something else is wrong. Or feed him more. I always feed my DD's tell they stoped on their own then burped them.

  • I agree that you should see the doctor. It could be colic, but it needs to be discussed with the doc. If it is a lot of gas maybe Mylicon drops would also help.

  • He could need a formula that is more broken down for easy digestion. Discuss the problem with the doctor and see if this could be his issue.

  • Sounds like colic. I agree with everyone else that you should see a dr. My son has a sensitive stomach and I love similac ready to feed sensitive.
