Hi Guys,   My baby is just 3. 5 months old now. Now a days he cries a lot specially just after dinner time. Here in my home town, its summer and temprature outside goes till 45 C. Initially we thought it might be due to hot weather but we notice, he cries even when under cooler. Also their is no symptom of heat like rashes or pimples on his body. Now we are guessing that it might be due to less sleep (because of discomforting weather). We are still struggling to manage him. We just try a lot of hit and trial methods, like putting him under cooler, in cradle, talk to him, play with him etc etc. But we still not able to find the right reason for his discomfort. He is still on mother feed and we are not giving anything else. Some people has suggested to start giving him water a couple of times in a day, but we are worried as doctor told not to give anything except mother feed till 6 months   Please help and suggest me what to do ?   Thanks Manoj

Tips for mother, important as you feed, drink close to 3 litres of water, add asafoetida in your curries as you should not be gastic, stay calm and happy when you feed. Now for the baby: for the next 7 days, every morning and night give 1 ml of Bonnisan (gripe water) and feed only every 3 hours for 15-30 mins, play with child

Hi,I remember my daughter going through the same when she was a baby. Along with incessant crying, she would also have a strange wheezing sound. We discovered that she was intolerant to lactose, hence she was put was on soya milk. It eased the situation and she slowly grew out of the lactose intolerance as well.

thanks everyone. This is a lot of help. We tried some of these things yesterday and he seems to be having some soothing effect. Thanks a lot again.

Colicaid works for some babies and some it doesn't. U could try neopeptine which contains digestive enzymes. If he is having a growth spurt it could also make him cry because he needs more milk at that point. If he has gas move his legs cyclically which will help him pass gas. Also don't forget to burp him properly cos if u don't it could also be a possible cause for colic. All the best

Hi again, as Anurima said, this will pass. In the meanwhile you could try these to help your baby feel better - hold and rock him gently, hold him upright to allow any gas to pass, ask his mother to avoid too much coffee, tea,spicy or gas causing foods for a few days and see if there is a difference. If nothing helps, it will be good to see your doctor as usually colic is said to subside by 4-5 months.
