Q.

Tummy Cramps

My 6 week old son gets terrible tummy cramps from about 3pm - 8pm. He is bottle fed and we''ve recently changed from Nan to Nan HA because of a milk allergy. Telament Colic drops seem to make it worse and if severe I give him Buscopan, which tastes terrible. Are there any other colic medicines / remedies that I could try?

Your baby does appear to be having colic. Are you sure that he has a milk allergy? If there is some doubt about him being allergic to cow's milk then he can usean anti-colic formula such as Novalac AC.he cannot use this formula if he is definitely cow's milk allergic.

Paed advised that its a milk allergy. My hubby has a milk allergy. Is there a difference between a milk allergy and lactose intolerant?

Hi Susu

My baby now 13 mnths, also suffered from terrible cramps around 4 months. The pharmacist advised me to use Spasmopep Junior and I promise u I was the hapiest mummy alive. U need to put only a few drops in the bottle and all your troubles will be over and it can be bought without a prescription.
