overfed, hungry or lactose problem???

My 7 week sold sun, drinks Nan1, he seems very uncomfortable, lots of noises, brings up little milk long time after feed &  burping every now &  again. He seems very hungry &  criep after 3 hours, is he overfed or does he need something more such as Lactogen or is he Lactose Intolerant? He also has stools that'  s greyish cement/putty like and lots which is sometimes watery &  only every 2-3 days. He stay awake for almost 4-5 hours at times due to uncomfortness, what can we do? His weight gain is fine, after being a very slow drinker at first &  changed to lattex teats and he was 4.2kg at 6 weeks.

Your baby is in the age group where colic can be a problem, but the symptoms you describe here are more likely to be due to lactose intolerance. Try your baby on a lactose free formula such as NAN LF and see if he improves.
