Severe colic and Gas in my infant who is also carrying congenital heartHi ,
My son was diagonised with Congenital Heart Defect which is ' MITRAL VALVE STENOSIS ' . He will turn 6mn old on 20th December . He is on Lasiks prescribed by his pediatric Cardiologist and also on 'ADONIS 30C' ,'CRETAEGUS 30C' and 'GOLD DROPS' which is the remedy that we get in India .
Besides this treatment he is suffering through severe gas , intermitent constipation if he takes any solids , colic as soon as he laughs , throwing up became quiet often .
I am nursing him . I used to alternate with formula to reduce the Jaundice as soon as he was born . He used to throw up sometimes so thought he is unable to digest the formula , tried soy formula but he didnot like it . So sticked on to my feeding , thinking that he will adjust his tummy . But then when his solids has begun I had to add the formula in it without which he is not liking it , that triggered severe constipation and throwing . So I stopped even providing solids . Now because of all these he is having severe gas , I can literary hear the rumbling sounds from his tummy escpecially in the night . He have a habit of going to poop around 7 am in the morning , to do that he suffers through gas from 2 Am , and so awakes quiet often by crying . Just in case he is constipated , he keeps crying and keep vomits and hate to be lied down and play. To handle this issue I provided him with 'Carbovegetabilis 30C' , 'colocynthis 12c ' , 'Constipation -Newtons Formula ', 'Teething and Colic - Newtons Formula','Indigestion Gas-Newtons Formula ', also he is on ZANTAC . I am tired of giving all these now , he throws up more because of all these . I am now trying to wean and get the Formula ' ALIMENTUM ' which is a basic formula with no lactose and hard to digest proteins . But he doesnt like any . I need help . After reading one forum I got an idea of taking these medications for myself . Also I got out of milk and soft drinks , I guess I have to away from proteinaceous food . Without these I am not getting enough milk supply , some times I have to eat pasta , donuts and pizza to kick the milk unfortunately those are troublesome to the kid .
Because of all these tummy upsets and fast breathing he is not willing to be on his tummy so it looks like he will not crawl that worries me more . He is supposed to have surgery for his heart to replace a valve ,but it got postponned as he was gaining enough weight which is 15 pounds and height around 24' .His gaining of weight has reduced due to constant throwing ups . And happy baby when no gas problem.
I need help desperately ...

give him CALC PHOS 30C one dose everyday morning for some 4 to 5 days and note the changes.
if it works, you can give one dose of calc phos 200c only whenever the symptoms return.
if there is absolutely no response to calc phos, nux vom 30c one or two doses can also be tried for the same.
