  • personally with my 3 mo DD I just give her a few gulps of her bottle and that seems to do the trick most of the time. there's really only been a couple of times where it didn't work, but I always give it a try. it normally works to stop them tho.

  • give her gripe water if you have it at home. If it's time for feeding you can give her a bottle it'll go away, at least it works for my son. I usually spoon feed my son some water and he's fine.
