It is possible that your baby has a mild intolerance to the ingredients of the cream of maize cereal.I don't know which brand you are using, but it sounds as if the one you are using contains cow's milk.Your baby may have a mild form of lactose intolerance or he may not be able to digest maize cereal at this stage. Try a different cereal such as Purity Rice cereal which does not contain milk.
