Foramen ovale: The foramen ovale generally closes around birth, when the blood circulation of the baby converts to that without the placental blood flow and the lungs start to work. The condition wherein the foramen ovale does not close is a patent foramen ovale, and causes mixing of oxygenated and non-oxygenated blood in the arterial system. This can cause fatigue, weakness and cyanosis in severe cases.

Formula issues: Your baby may be having issues with the formula. There are alternatives to this, such as soy formulas. Still, you should see your pediatrician or fp about this problem, so he/she can help determine what would be appropriate. There should be no corn syrup or sugar added to the formula, as this has been formulated to come as close as mother's milk as possible. Only water should be added to this.

Migraine: You have to be sure it is a migraine first, and diagnosed as such. Many migraines respond to simple medications, like excedrin, Ibuprofen and naproxen. However, others are more complicated, and need prescription medications, such as triptans. You can also be on topiramate, which can help prevent migraines, as well as other anti-seizure medications. See your doctor for the appropriate treatment.
