Is it good to give enterogermina at 5 weeks?

I have a 5 week old baby, he is on formula and breast milk . He often looks like he is in pain when he is breaking wind and will cry and grunt most of the time. I took him to a doctor and the doctor prescribed enterogermina liquid drops to be taken alternate days, plus a range of other medicines. Is it okay to be giving him enterogermina at 5 weeks?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Exclusive breast feeding is good for the baby. It prevents against infections and good for the brain growth.

Improper burping could be the cause of colic in a baby. Try to burp your baby after a feed.

I did not understand why a baby of 5 weeks receive " a range of other medicines". Enterogermina contains bacteria that are not harmful. So it can be given.

Hope this helps.
Take care
