kathleen, sa, 6 week old baby
I am wary with disagreeing with a health professional but that is what worked for us.
Painful gas is a usual indicator that the bub's system is not ready for something that they are digesting or something medical. Get a second opinion.
Hope it works out.

After starting her on NAN within days I could see a major improvement - it was a life saver.
Not sure whether a formula change would be useful to you but it certainly was the best thing for my daughter.
A friend of mine had a similar problem and ended up taking her to a chiropractor and after that she had no problems at all. I'm not sure I would try it but it worked for her as they said her neck was out after a difficult birth which put her whole system out, might be worth a try.

Not that i have much experience as my baby girl is only 4 weeks old (she's on Heinz Nurture formula), she has really bad wind. We use the Brauer "Colic Relief" liquid. It's homoeopathic so safe for lil babies to use and I find it works really well. It's available at most chemists.

Hope your baby settles soon. It can be very exhausting

For the one day she is upset, the pharmacist recommended we try Infacol wind drops which are also sugar free.
I also give my bub when she is upset 30mls of water and it usuallu quitems her down a little. A dummy helps to settle her also, but doen't help the pain.
I hope everything works well for you!
It has been an absoluate god send !!
He used to move his bowels every 3 days and was in terrible pain and now does it every 24 hours with no pain at all. The wind has died down considerably aswell.
He's now 11 weeks old, thriving and a much happier baby.
