Hi Raksha. Babies sometimes feel pain in stomach and chest since gas can be trapped up and they may have gas pains. This is known as colicky. They cry as that'd the way they communicate with us. Formula milk tends to have more gas problems as far as I have faced with my baby. U can try the below : 1. Apply castor oil on navel and massage lightly around the navel and lower tummy. This relieves if there is pain and also releases trapped gas. 2. Has ur baby rolled over yet? If not try to put baby on tummy for 10 mins daily. This relieves gas. Tip: keep alot of toys around on floor so baby vl be enthusiastic to play. 3. I give colicaid drops as prescribed by my ped. Pls consult ur doctor and ask for some drops in case baby cries out so much. Happy parenting!
