  • You could try little tummys gripe water. I used it for my son and it worked pretty well.

  • well if she's colicky becuz she's gassy then try burping her more often. my 3 mo DD occasionally suffers from this. she doesn't always cooperate when we burp her after feedings. that's when she gets fussy. I find that the more frequently I burp her throughout feedings the less colicky she is. maybe this will work for you. the key is finding out why she's colicky in the first place. ask your ped.

  • Not so young :( Try gripe's fantastic! Sugar water is just empty calories that wil fill her up without any nutrients.
