  • I try warm baths with my 6 week old. It works until we get out, then she starts crying again.

  • Sounds like gas. I recently leared from my Nana that gas can travel thru your body and seeing my daughter suffer from it i can tell it hurts them. Try a little baking soda and a little bit of coke. don't dilute it. But don't give them too much. he will either burp or pass gas or do both. And then monitor what you're giving him. It might be to heavy for his stomach.

  • They have warm pad like things u fill with warm water and u can lay It on his tummy. That might soothe it.

  • You should ask your doctor. Depending on his age there are different options.

  • Try gripe water. It's what I use for my 6 wk old, and its all natural and you dont have to worry about overdose. I give it to my son and 15 minutes later, he farts really loudly, poops, and falls asleep. They have a brand called little tummys and you can find it in walmart in the pharmacy. also you can find fair trade gripe water in your local organics store if you prefer. best of luck!
