Good day Doc,

Firstly thank-you for your time, its much appreciated!
My LG is 8months old and she is still on Perlagon, is this ok? Is it necessary to change her &  if so to which formula? The reason she' s on Perlagon is because i' ve tried most formulas and they make her constipated. So far perlagon is better.
My second concern is that she has a problem with winds still at 8months. She was a colicky baby and ever since, the winds hits her in the morning at the sametime everyday &  she screams.
I give her buscopen syrup sometimes. She doesn' t eat that much (only 6-7 tsp) twice a day of homemade puree veggie/fruit.
Another thing is that she has never slept through the night since she was born. She still wakes up 7-8times a night, when i breastfeed her, she only sucks twice or trice then she sleeps again.
Doc is all of this normal for an 8month old?

Thanking you in advance for the response.

You are welcome. Something is obviously worrying your baby. It seems that lactose intolerance is a strong possibility. Try her on a lactose free formula. This may make her constipated which does concern me.The other possibility is a soya formula.
