Q.

mommy''s blue coz of baby''s pooh!

Dear doc,

My baby of 3 months wa constipated on Isomil and therefor my paed put him on NAN Perlagon last week Monday because he has also been suffering from gas and stomach cramps.all tummy scans, sonars and urine tests are clear. His pooh the last two days has been soft and green, but tonight when passing alot of gas he had a watery yellow stool which burned his bum. He is still very gassy. I don''t know what to do anymore, he is constaantly crying because of his unwell tummy. Is it the formula that''s now starting to work oris something wrong??

Thanks

It is very likely that your baby has a lactose intolerance problem and is unable to digest milk properly. Try him on a lactose-free formula such as NAN LF.
