Agreed with everyone.. Say no to gripe water even my mother in law also insists me to give gripe water but my pediatrician say no strictly... U can also do one more thing .. Take a soft cusion n lay ur baby from tummy side for releasing colics.. It wil help.. Or hing nuskha also works well

agree with bhargavi.. give colicaid drops few minutes before feed.. tummy time is great!! if tummy time not possible on bed directly, use different position like take support of ur thigh (baby tummy on ur thigh, and feet just touching bed)..

plz don't give gripe water to ur baby... it makes ur baby to feel drowsy becoz of d alcohol content present n d gripe water... u can give neo peptine drops... If u wants to deal it naturally,then u can soak hing in d breast milk for 3-4 minutes & give it to ur baby...

hi, I also have a very gassy baby.... my pediatrician strictly forbid me from giving gripe water. burping, tummy time, and colic aid drops helped us.... more than anything..... patience. it's not dangerous for the child and they will eventually pass this phase too.... so next time someone suggests gripe water , smile and say no.

please don't.. you can give some tummy time.. also gently massage the tummy in circular motion.. you can apply a little hing mixed with water externally on the tummy.. but please don't give anything internally.. if your baby is too cranky consult your Dr and he/she may suggest colicaid drops..

no. dnt give him gripe water. according to doctors it is alcohol. put him in your lap with tummy side and so that his tummy comes on your knee. also when you massage him do cycling exercise of baby legs...........
