Q.

Cramps

My baby is nearly 10 days old and he seems to get a lot of painful cramps, resulting in firm putty like stools. What can I give him?

There is nothing that you can give him as such.I presume that your baby is being formula fed.If he is try Novalac IT formula.For the first 2 days give every 2nd bottle using the Novalac IT formula alternating with the Novalac Regular formula.After that use only the Novalac IT.

My sister is breast feeding, her baby is 4weeks, the baby gets cramps after her 5pm feeding and 3am feeding. Is there anything that can help? Ather feeding times she is fine.
