Q.

cramping

Hi there

my daughter is going on three weeks of age and i have noticed in the last few days that she has restllss sleep... she sometimes cramps while sleeping and moans or cries in her sleep. should i be worried?

i am bottle feeding her which causes a bit of difficulty when passing stools. could this be the reason for her cramping and restless sleep pattern?

what can i do?

Yes, your baby is having colic and is also becoming constipated on her formula. Try her on a different formula, preferably a casein rich formula. Lactogen1 is recommneded.
