  • have you tried gas drops? My pedi recommended giving some to my dd several times a day to give her some relief since her milk was so high in iron..also if it does happen to be gas try massaging her legs like he/she is riding a bike..

  • Go and buy som baby "Mylacon". I thnk that's how it's spelled. It works great for gassy tummies. Your you could put a peppermint (red and white candy) into a bottle of water to try and help. I looooved the Mylacon though. It should be by the infant medicines and comes in a box. It's a small bottle with dropper. Good luck!

  • colic is when they cry for hours and can't be consoled. Try bicycling her legs, rubbing her belly in circles, givng her extra tummy time to get more burps out or just help her digest her food.

  • My 6-week-old son is very fussy when he is gassy, but he forgets about the gas when he's on the breast. So whenever he's having problems, I offer him a breast, and it's a bit easier for both of us to deal with!
