Paediatrician

It is possible that your baby has a problem with lactose intolerance if she is so windy that nothing seems to help her. Try her on a lactose free milk such as NAN LF and see if she improves. If she does not get better it would be best to consult your paediatrician.

Try Natura' s Tissue Salts number 8, it helps a great deal with cramping.

Hi,
I have found that to make it worse!
My son had cramps and cried non stop and the more i gave him gripe water and telament drops the more he cried. I stopped both and they winds got much better!
Hope it helps!
