Home > Abdominal Gas and Colic
Some people have problems digesting milk protein or milk
sugar (lactose intolerance). But these problems are very rare
in babies. Until your doctor can evaluate your baby, it is usually not
advisable to switch formula or stop breastfeeding as a means to remedy
suspected food digestion problems.
majority of babies diagnosed with
colic do not have health problems that affect
digestion. But many things can cause some
degree of abdominal gas, which can make crying worse.
If your child's doctor suggests medicine to reduce gas,
use it exactly as prescribed.
