Infant tummy pains at night only


Q: Hi, my 12 day old son is very healthy, great sleeper etc. but the last two nights he has had a very upset tummy and lots of runny yellow poop, he just screams trying to poop or pass gas, once he does he sleeps great. He is great all day long. it has just been at night. What can I do for him? I thought it might be a dairy intolerance as our other son is allergic but I didn't eat any dairy yesterday and last night was awful, we were all up all night. Now he has been sleeping all morning and is quite content.
