Infant with passing gas and difficulty in passing motion. Giving Xymex. Is it due to indigestion?

Hi doc, my baby boy is six weeks old and has been exceptionally gassy. The gripes get worse in the night. The ped had prescribed him colicaid 15min before feed 3-4 times a day however that didn t seem to be working. He puts in too much effort in passing gas or a motion ( which is of right consistency every two days). He has changed the medi now to xymex drops on the same dosage. May be its too early to say but after two doses also that doesn t seem to be working well. The kid is restless every 1 hour with gripes bugging him again. M wondering if this is a case of silent reflux and NOT colic or indigestion. What do you think? Pls help

Around this age flatulence and colic is common and nothing to worry and this will cause a little bit discomfort to kid. For flatulence you can give neopeptine drops twice dialy after consulting your doctor and burp regularly after each feeding and with proper attachment while feeding the baby to the breast is advised. For colic you can give colicaid drops as advise and you can position the baby tummy on your shoulder while carrying and you can gently massage the tummy of your baby and nothing to worry as these problems will settle with increasing age.
