Hi my name is caro, i have a 12 month old baby boy who has been dealing with excessive gassiness since day 1. The formulas had been changed 5x and now is taking milk(i chose lactaid) b/c of the issue with gassiness. He was sleeping very well from 8-10 months and he would complaint from gassiness at times (night time). But ever since he turned 11 and now 12 months he is having frequent awakenings due to gassiness. This situation reminds me when he was a new born.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Stop gripe water and other medications. Change formula feed to easily digestible formula like Cerelac or use homemade baby foods.

If symptoms does not improve consult a doctor and ask for stool examination tests.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
