  • For a baby or adult? I'd say if it's not for a baby, then avoid foods that upset your stomach.

  • If it's for an adult, try mixing baking soda with water and drinking it. Don't make it too strong tho.

  • A strong cup of peppermint tea will provide relief quickly,especially if you walk around while drinking it. A hot water compress placed directly on the abdomen. There are a few more I know of, but not enough room to type it all out.

  • Calmicid works for me - it is natural - it contains Calcium carbonate to neutralize acid, Ginger to soothe and help calm nausea, Chamomile to help the digestive tract, and fennel seed to help ease occasional stomach cramps and gas :) - it tastes good and works. Please let me know if you would like anymore info.
