My baby boy Leland was born March 26th. i have been breastfeeding with supplementation, but due to circumstances, unfortunately need to get him on 100% formula ASAP. It seems to me his belly is bothering him, he is passing a lot of gas. He also eats, burps, then gets the hiccups EVERY TIME in that order. When I lay him on his belly over my lap, he passes gas and seems to get comfortale and falls asleep. He also has very runny stools. He seems to cry out in pain, all of a sudden, and hike up his legs. I am just concerned on how it would be determined for certain there is a problem, and what formula options are most common. My daughter never had these problems, but this baby keeps me up around the clock. I just gave him some Mylicon gas drops for the first time this evening, will see if this works. I am just concerned because I can barely afford formula, and I know any special formulas would be prohibitively expensive, plus I obviously want to make him more comfortable. My mother's intuition is telling me his tummy hurts and he is in pain, I just have to do something! Anyone with any info, experiences, or advice, I appreciate it...
