Infant GasMy 5 month old baby has started to have trouble sleeping and is overtired and cranky. I think he has bad gas. He grunts and whines periodically thoughout the day. It is often worse in the late afternoon. He passes gas (loudly many times in a row) and seems to get some relief from that. I often need to help him by pushing is legs into his abdomen. He stiffens his whole body. I think the gas is preventing him from sleeping because during naps he falls asleep sometimes for 10-15 minutes and then wakes up crying. Other times, he can sleep fine for over an hour. He used to sleep through the night with no issues, but now he wakes up a few times a night as well. He is on formula and sometimes gets constipated as well. I was thinking of trying Hylands colic tablets or some form of Gripe Water like Colic Ease or Colic Calm. Any suggestions?

Doc suggested things that would have been bad for a baby's brain, (phenobarb in small doses). Now way was I going to use that.
What finally worked was a heatin pad on my tummy, and him laying across it, while I walked. Seemed to provide some relief, enough for him to sleep, some. And yes, I had several extension cords to give me more mobility.
If you have one of those baby slings, like a papoose in fron, that would work. Seems the combo of heat and some movement helps, when nothing else did.
