8 weeks old with probably reflux and gasHello,
I need some help for my 8 week old baby. He was breast fed for a few weeks after which he was moved to formula milk as I developed an infection. He has generally been keeping well and gaining weight properly too. He sometimes had little problem with gas so we used to ensure that we burp him well and also started giving him gripe water after he was 4 weeks old. He sometimes used to arch his back but I used to think it was gas.
His regular routine was to have his feed and then massage & bath. Post bath, he used to have a small feed and sleep. But since last week he is unable to sleep and throws up about 20 min after I put him down. Also he has started arching his back a lot more and sometimes cries as well. He usually settles down by evening.
I started giving him Infacol before his feeds and he has started burping better but the condition has not improved. I researched on the internet and feel his symptoms are related to reflux. I now do not put him down after the feed and he is quite comfortable when kept upright, though he still appears to be in pain and arches a bit.
I would be grateful if there is a remedy to help by baby as it's difficult to see him in pain.

Are these drops for colic or reflux? The symptoms my baby has developed match reflux not colic. I have read if baby has colic he will pull legs up and cry. If baby has reflux he will arch his back, throw up after feeds and get lots of hiccups. This of what my baby is doing as well.
Just wanted to confirm if the drops suggested by you are to treat these symptoms.
