My baby girl is 2 months old, just recently (since last week) she has just not been herself. After feedings, I burp her and then maybe in 5 min after that she'll start crying/screaming out of know where. Some times, she'll be inconsolable..It frustrates me BIG time, I don't know what is wrong..Nothing is pinching/scratching her, has a clean diaper, shes fed..I just don't know why all of a sudden the cry's!! Im guessing it might be Colic, i give her some gas drops every once in awhile, but I don't want to give it to her all the time.. Anybody know any good Natural remedies for a infant with colic?? or what do you ladies think it might be??? I have never dealt with a colic baby before, any help is greatly appreciated!!

 It sounds like gas if it's happening after eating. Is she on formula or beastmilk?

Gripe water is my best friend. Mine was diagnosed with reflux. We use it less not that he's on meds but i still love it. I use it vs gas drops.

 Could be reflux, does she arch her back? Is there a gulping sound when she is eating? I used gripe water with my girls and it did help but ultimately found out they had reflux and was prescribed Zantac and it did wonders.

Well there's two types of colic.
One is when they have gas, the other is when they just cry for no reason. So have drops wouldn't really help.

I would look into reflux.

 I agree with everyone's suggestion on reflux.

Tummy calm or colic calm. They are all natural. We use gas drops after every bottle, and have been since she was maybe one month old, she is almost 11 months. It won't hurt her, and a lot better than being gassy.

Is she bottle or breast fed? If bottle fed, try dr brown bottles. Those worked great for the gas. If breast fed you might want to try and change your diet some.

Gripe water worked with my colic DD it was a life saver.

Gripe water is great for gas. If it's not gas maybe the PURPLE crying stage.

Do you breastfeed? She may need to be burped halfway through a feed, no matter how she's fed. If you are breastfeeding, it could be overactive letdown/oversupply, which is often mistaken for reflux. What are her poopy diapers like?
