What causes stomach discomfort and crying in a baby?

Hello Doc, My name is Lucy John and I have a 2 month old daughter. I feed her Nan 1 around 90ml, 3 scoops 4 times a day as my milk is insufficient. She passes stools normally 3 - 4 times in a day. I also breast feed her every 2-3 hours. The problem occurs at night. She cries a lot and makes some loud grunting noises as though she is applying lot of pressure to pass stools and has some uneasiness in her stomach. This goes on for 1-2 hours. Once she passes her stool she stops crying. During the day she is normal, only at night this problem occurs. When I try to feed her during this time she has 2-3 sips and cries again. I wanted to ask u if this is normal behavior, also if I can give her Aristozyme drops and what dosage? Is she having stomach pain? I also tried giving her drops for infant colic called colicaid but it did not help.

Hi,

This is common in early infancy. If baby is otherwise playful, feeding well and gaining weight as expected, this can be considered normal, and need not be worried. Babies tend to be a bit cranky and fussy at night. No need to give Aristozyme or any other drugs for this.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
