  • Try giving her a tsp of Karo in her next bottle (make sure you stir it up well). That usually helps my baby.

  • A belly massage may help her until you get through to the nurse. Poor thing. Just rub her belly in small circles moving from top to bottom inside to outside. DS used to get this way and that would calm him some.

  • lay her on her back and make her legs do motions like riding a bike. OR warm baths to help relax her. If none of that works...I know this sounds weird but take her temp......I had to do it with my daughter many times it helps them push out what they cant. They automaticall push. When we called for my daughter (the docs) they told us she was too young to be having troubles like that already.....dumb people!!!!! Small amounts of apple juice mixed with water helps too.

  • I had to use suppositories to help my son, but I would get a nurse /doc to confirm if they want you to do that or not. I had to do it every 36 hours for months with my son.

  • The Kyro syrup is a good tip. I would also give her prunes if you can get her to take them.

  • Karo is a botulism risk....even the manufacturer says NOT to use it on infants.
