<br><br>Infant with digestive issues, frequent bowels, rumbling in intestine and cold. Suggestion?<br>

hello Dr we have a 12 week old baby and he seems to have digestive issues such as not digesting his feeds and having a bowel motion 5 minutes into a feed for every feed. He seems to be in pain when going... After his bowel motion he stops feeding completely and will cry and scream if you dare to try and feed him again; otherwise he is plaiyng and laughing as usual. His faeces vary from normal loose baby stool to runny stools . He is not having the other breast anymore and I have started pumping and dumping...Nevertheless, he had a mini cold attack which he is still recovering from and is congested but can otherwise breath when feeding. Doctor gave us an all clear on his chest sounds. I can also hear rumbling in intestines during the feed and I know he is about to stop....

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Do not panic. These are consequences of a blocked nose and inefficient burping.
Please give saline nasal drops 10 mins before you feed.
Burp the child adequately and effectively after each feeds.
If the child cries give him colicaid drops.
Give him catalyd drops after feeds thrice daily for 7 days.
Continue breast feeding.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Thanks for your query.
Your baby is passing frequent stools which is normal i breast fed babies and is due to increased gastrocolic reflex.
Relax there is nothing to worry as he is active and feeding normally.
Regarding intestinal colic,it usually settles by age of 3 to 4 months.
You can give neopeptine drops after consulting your pediatrician.

You should avoid gas forming food items in your diet.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
