Q.

Abdominal discomfort

My baby is 3 weeks old and is breastfeeding. He has abdominal discomfort, he curls up his body and he groans, especially at nite. I was considering to introduce the formula in a week'  s time but I am not sure now given this condition. When he cries, he also makes unusual sound - as if something is pressing against his nasal tract / throat.

Your baby may be having colic although he is a bit young for this now.Try one of the colic remedies and see if this helps him. If you still have problems please write to me again.
