: My son is 3 1/2 weeks old and breastfed every 3 hours. His has extreme gas pains that last up to 3 hours twice a day. I use gripe, have massaged his stomach, watched my diet but nothing seems to help. He screams and stiffens and streches in pain. Any ideas?

Hi Lyndsay-- My daughter has the same thing. What I found works awesome is Mylicon, like everyone else was saying BUT the bottle says take it after each feeding...my dr said to take it before each feeding..that's the only way it works..believe me! Also take a sock put alot of rice in it tie the other end...heat it up and put it on your babies tummy...You'll think you have a whole new baby...And this will only last a couple of months..my daughter is 10 weeks and I probably do those things once a week if that....hope this helps!!!
