Atarax drops for my 1 month old baby boy
I just had a baby boy, we named him reyansh. For the initial few days he faced some problems(imidiately post birth) like 1. Bilirubin count was high 2. Got cold and fever For Both this case he was admitted in NICU. Post this he was happy and normal, but he has been having sever gas problems. We burp him post every feed. My wife even stops feed in middle and gives him an interim burp. However after every few days he cries uncontrollably when we consulted the doctor he recommended to use atarax drops. He told him to give 3-4 drops when he cries uncontrollably. The problem when I read about attarax drops online it is not advised for any infant. I also observered after giving attractive drops baby sleeps for 3-4 hrs. Can some one please tell me if attarax drop is advised or should we change medication. We are also have to change pediatrician if anyone can recommend good pediatrician near nerul. We are first time parents hence more nervous and anxious. Awaiting your reaponses

Crying uncontrollable in more of evening time is due to evening colic which is very common phenomenon in infants.. You can give short course of probiotics..(5-7 days) and drops diospas/colitru/colimax ~5 drops (twice the wt of your child) whenever needed. Make him sleep on stomach 3-5 hours in a day that will make him comfortable.
