Do not use any Gripe water, this only treats the symptoms and not the actual problem. You need to find out whether your baby is allergic to milk or has a lactose intolerance problem.This will be determined by his response to the suggestions given previously. If it is lactose intolerance then this may be lifelong.Children often outgrow cow's milk allergy.
