At this stage the 2 most likely causes are colic or possibly lactose intolerance. Try a colic remdy such as Bennetts Colic Remedy and see if this helps. If not it would be best to see your paediatrician as your baby is rather young to have cramps to such a degree.

Just remembered that I also used to use Mag Phos, crush a tablet and give in some expressed breast milk. I don''t know how well it worked though, but I remember that the telement ALWAYS worked.
