Abdominal Colic

Hi, My baby boy when he was 4wks the doctor sd he has abdominal colic and said it will be fine when he is 3mnths. we changed his formula to Novalac-AC the cramps and the struggling to poo was still there but better than before. now 4mnths and 3wks later he is still have cramps now and again and he' s got a lot of wind in his stomach and he stuggles to take it out which makes him uncomfortable. He still drinks Novalac-AC and he is eating porridge, i was hoping to change his milk to S26 skim milk but what could the problem with the cramps and gas, why is it not going away ?

The symptoms which you describe are most likely to be due to lactose intolerance which is an inability to digest the lactose [ natural milk sugar] part of milk. Try your baby on NAN LF or S26 LF. If she does not improve please write in again.
