  • Milicon drops, leg pushes, I would place my son over my arm and lay him the long way so he's facing the floor but my arm is elevated straight out and bounce around the room,. I never heard anything about peppermints though.

  • Ditto on the gas drops and leg pumping. Also I heard a warm bath up to the nipple line (hold her up, may need two people) and then massage her tummy if you think it is really bad but this will cause a bowel movement too so watch out and be ready for clean up.

  • OOOOO I GOT ONE!!! let me try to explain this... lay your daughter, tummy down, on your forearm (between your hand and elbow) Head towards the elbow... i don't think it really matters though, and bounce your arm, or sway, AND rub her back or pat it... this did wonders for me!!

  • i agree with laying baby tummy down on your arm and bouncing, that can get tireing so you can try laying baby tummy down accross your lap and patting and rubbing thier back, thats what i do and she loves it, also the mylicon drops, and sometimes when its bad i give her gripe water and it works everytime, you can get it at the grocery store next to all the baby stuff for about 10 dollars.
