  • I found if I held by son across by stomach with his stomach against mine and rubbed his back it would help. I guess the heat transfer between our bodies helped him.

  • Lay him on his stomach. Rub his stomach. Push his legs up to his tummy and lightly push them into his belly.

  • Have you tried infant massage? There is a thing you can do where you touch their toes to their nose and it helps the gas come out. We used to do it to my daughter and we called it "cranking out the toots" because she always farted. There are also some other ways to rub them that helps with digestion.

  • The best answer is pro biotics. I believe gripe water is a probiotic. Probiotics will not only help with gas but with reflux and it strengthens the immune system. They also help with spitting up. I hope it works!

  • probiotics for sure (I use FloraBaby) and Gripewater!

  • We used Mylicon, the infant gas drops and "bicycled" our daughters legs until the colic was outgrown. Or lay the baby on tummy on your lap and kind of roll him over your legs.
