I have a referral letter from GP with details of her consultation.

Thanks for the details

This can happen with indigestion or abdominal gases

You should give him Gripe water

That can help in relieving the colic pain which is usually the reason

In the meanwhile you should try to get an appointment to make sure he does not require any investigations

which type of expert doctor do we need to see? we tried gripe water in the first months and it did no help but indeed good idea to try again. do you recommend any specific brand?

You should look for a Pediatric Gastroenterologist if possible

You can try Woodward's Gripe water
