Q.

Constipation/Colic

My baby is about 7 weeks but she seems to constantly have a sore stomach and sometimes has wind. She seems constipated as she only passes stool about once a week. Is she just colic or can I help her in some way?

Your bay is definitely constipated asshe should be passing a stool at least every second or third day.This may be due to the formula she is on-if she is formula fed. Change to Lactogen 1 and see if dshe improves.
