Q.

overfeeding

My baby is 7 weeks old, cries (wails) insistently after feeding and has a lot of cramps all day and night and loose yellow stools after each feed. Telamint drops do not help. He has 100ml of s26gold almost every 2 hours. He has gained 2kg since birth. He seems to be constantly hungry. Please help

He seems to be overfeeding, but is also very colicky. I suggest that you change his feed to NAN. If there is a history of milk allergy or lactose intolerance in your family, you may have to use NAN HA or a lactose free formula.
