  • Get some ear plugs, sit back and swaddle.

  • weak mint tea and have them set up for 30 min after eating. lots of rocking warmth from your tummy to theirs helps. rubbing tummy and leg movements to help them pass gas. Ask your baby doctor if there is meds. Baby malanta helped my kids but ask you dr first.

  • at 2 weeks they diagnosed this? wow. um, well... rocking, try soothing environments, swaddling, some babies like sitting in a dark bathroom in tub skin to skin with mommy, be sure to have someone help, a friend or relative to give you a break, gripe water.....patience
