  • I use to give mine anise which is like a star shaped dried plant, make like a tea, and give the baby this instead of plain water. If this doesn't work pretty much all you can do is cuddle and rock him and love him until it goes away

  • I nused my son but when he was gassy a couple of times I gave him Mylecon and it worked like a charm. I would never deny a baby food though. If he is hundry I would feed him. I would add "Probiotics" to his bottle and that will add his digestion. You can find it at a local health food store or you buy it online. I give my 20 month old son Udo's.

    Or we used Hylands Colic Tablets.

    GL hope that helps some

  • Mylicon drops. seriously they should have given you a small bottle at the hospital, but you can just buy some at pretty much any store.

  • I used to use mylicon drops but switched to gripe water - my dd loves it! It seems to work better for her than the drops...
