Q.

Baby on pepticate

I’m desperate for some help, baby is 10 weeks, she’s been on total comfort, isomil, Novolac ac, Nan Pelargon and now pepticate. She was on nexiam for 3 weeks but I never really saw a major difference, so we’ve stopped. She would get a rash on her face and had really bad nappy rash 4 times, paed said protein allergy, prescribed a anti fungal drops for her and pepticate. . She has been on pepticate since last Thursday, she still seems crampy and Gassy. Rash has cleared. She farts a lot and doesn’t sleep much in the day as she seems like she is in Constant pain and is very unsettled!!! The vomiting seems to be worse too!! Do I need to give pepticate more time?? Please help, I’m really desperate.

I don't know what happened to your question which only popped up today(23 May) Your question is very important. It is almost certain that your baby daughter is very highly allergic to cow's milk She must go directly to an amino acid formula such as Similac Alimentum or Novalac Aminova formula. She must also be seen by a paediatric allergist ASAP so that she can be properly diagnosed and treated.
