Q.

urine and gas

Good day, my 5 month old baby''s urine has a strong smell, sometimes it smells like she had a poop, but its only urine. She sleeps very little at night, waking about 4-5 times and from 4 in the morning she is awake almost every half an hour. She then starts to release gass, and cries when she does, moving around alot. why can this be? can i give her anything?

There is a strong possibility that your baby is having a problem with lactose intolerance and cannot digest her milk properly. Try her on a lactose free formula such as NAN LF or S26 LF and see if she is better on one of these special formulas.
