Infant has GERD, headaches, green stool, in pain, soft stools. What may be wrong?

my month and a half baby boy has gerd , got a vaccine and antibiotics and his gerd got worse. got him treated for it with accupuncture and it seemed to do really well. now i have a new cause for concern bc he gets headaches, has green stool and during these times cannot feed bc he is inconsolably crying in pain. lasts 1-2 hours then it seemingly passes when he goes to sleep and wakes up fine, goes back to feeding and passing yellow soft stool. he is breast fed. the other day i could not wake him up and rushed to the hospital where he awoke by himself and the doc checked vital signs and all was ok. he also has pain in his shoulder and base of the skull .

Thank you for your query.

I am really surprised at the following observations made by you:
1. Headache - how did the 1-1/2 month baby tell you that he has headache?
2. Pain in shoulder and base of skull - how did the baby tell you about it?
3. Relief of GERD by acupuncture - what criteria were used for this?

Breast fed babies pass golden yellow, semi-solid to watery motion virtually after every feed. On occasions they may be green. As your son grows the duration between two feeds will increase and the child may sleep for longer periods which should not be a cause for worry.

As the doctors have examined your child and do not find anything wrong, I suggest that you wait and watch. Hopefully every thing is normal with your child.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
