  • Poor little thing...I'm not sure if there is too much you can do. Try laying your baby across your lap and pating his/her back. Just make sure to use a burp cloth! :)

  • I've heard rubbing their tummy helps. When my son was really gassy I would bouncy him on my knee (like ride a horesy/a bumpy road). Hope baby feels better

  • when mine had stomach ache i kissed his tummy, made it a bit fun for him, was doing 'boo booo etc.'. he looked carefuly and smiled at the end, he was so little (don't remember exactly) it passed real fast considering how often he called for food than. i assumed he simlpy ate too much.

  • How do know your 3 week old has a tummy ache? She cant tell you. ITs prolly gas. Try mylocon or gripe water. both are great...
