  • get mylicon drops and give them to her with each feeding.

    don't let her eat too fast

    keep her upright for 30 minutes after feedings.

  • fennel tea helps get rid of gas, my son had awful colic and this was all that helped. The teabag goes in the water for like a second, hardly enough to colour the water but it really works!!
