  • My DD Liked to be swaddled and also liked to lay on my lap and I would sway my knees from side to side, GL

  • How old is he? It may be more than being gassy... he could have an allergy to something he is eating or his formula.....

  • Do like emturner but lay a warm blanket across your knees where his belly would be. Put it in the dry for a few minutes. Pat his back in the process

  • Try patting his butt too while doing that :)

  • Read the book the happiest baby on the block, there is also a DVD now.. Helped me out a lot..
    For my daughter she likes to be swaddled, listening to white noise while we rock her.. Her favorite white noise is a static station on the tv or the vaccum

  • I put a small chunk of candy cane in a four ounce bottle of warm water and shook it until it disolved. Peppermint is very good for getting rid of gas.

  • How old is your baby? Depends on their age of what can help them. If he is too young the tea may be irritating their belly.
