My daughter is 28 days old. She is suffering from gas problem. I am not sure if it is colic pain as she does not cry a lot, but she is struggling to pass gas. She is squeezing her entire body to pass gas and due to this, she is not able to sleep properly. She will wake up in the middle of sleep to pass gas. She does cry sometimes while passing urine, motion and gas. After seeing this, we gave her gripe water for two days of about 0.25 mL when she was 15 days old. I consulted a pediatrician and he suggested Colpep drops 8 drops day and night. We tried this for one week, but we did not see any improvement. So, our pediatrician advised Neopeptine 8 drops day and night along with Colpep in 10 minutes interval. Also, he told to use both drops after breastfeed. I gave this for two days and realized that both medicines looks similar. When I consulted another pediatrician, he said not to give both and only either one of that should be given. I am very confused now and worried as I have already given both drops together for two days. Will it cause any problem to my baby? Please suggest which medicine to give for gas trouble? How long it will take to cure? Can we give gripe water?
I am really fed up with different opinions from everyone. Is it mandatory to give medicine for gas trouble? I heard it will gradually subside at around 4 to 5 months of age. I feel that we have given too many things to her like Colipep, Neopeptine and gripe water. I feel that she should not get affected by these medicines. Please help me out.
