Is there anything else i can do to reduse his
stomach ache as he cries everyday due to it..
Waiting for your reply..Thanks

Dear Mr. Haider,

I think all this is normal, and you shouldn't be doing anything more ... perhaps you could cut out one of the two gas medicines, because gassiness is normal. Tell your wife to stop giving him top milk, as breast milk is enough and bottles cause more gas problems, besides dealing a death blow to breast milk.

Dr. Taher

P.S. If she still needs to give top milk, tell her to give it with a cup and spoon.
