Hi Namita Shah Never give anything other than breast milk or formula milk until your baby is 6months old. This give all the sufficient nutrition required for the proper growth requirements for the baby upto 6months. Your baby 's digestive system and its enzymes are not ready for other foods. So giving such food items might trouble normal bowel habits. Exclusive breastfeeding till 6 months makes your baby healthiest.

avoid gripe water upto 6 months . give colicaid drops. it soothes the baby. burp the baby prooerly, if curd like vomiting is there then its ok. the baby doesn't sleep due to gas problem or stomach not full. wean off the baby from sleeping on lap, buy a cradle. I have also faced the same problem, I know how it feels. tc.

Please don't give gripe water, it contain alcohol, sodium. This may put your baby drowsy. Baby sleep but it is under the effect of alcohol. Sleeping problems is seen in most of babies, try to make her sleep in cradle. The rocking movement may be soothing for your baby

Also indulge your baby in some tummy massage using some warm olive oil and cycle your baby's legs, this will help her relieve all the gas. Babies don't sleep even because of colic.

Hi Anusha! My baby is 2 months old too and faced the same problem until she turned 2 months last week. Babies love to sleep on the lap because of the warmth. I suggest you put her on the bed with you and cuddle her and give your warmth, I tried that with my baby and it worked. Also, regarding Gripe water, I give my baby twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the night but I dilute it with little bit of water. And I always give lesser than what's it's required to give a 2 month old. Gripe water will help in digestion (That's personally my opinion since it worked on my baby) And don't worry about the spit up, especially if it's curd, that's very normal and should happen. And believe me, it's all a phase. Babies don't behave the same way everyday. If it's not tolerable, then get help from your doctor. Hope this helps :)

doctors do not recommend gripe water... spitting is common in infants anf also depends what you eat and how frequent you burp your kid... for sleeping problem ...as its winter kids want warmness so sleep in lap... you can wrap them before putting in lap... and once they fall asleep put them on bed along with wrap that will help

I dont recommend giving any sort of gripe water to a 2 months old one. The same prob happened with my daughter as well. R u exclusively breasts feeding her if yes then could be a possibility that her stomach is not getting filled completely. talk to ur pediatrician and ask him which formula milk he suggests, and u can start with that. All the best

For a 2 month old baby breast feeding in every 2 to 3 hrs is mandatory. And do burping also not only after feeding. Burp her when she is awake. And please don't introduce any semi solid food in this age. You can give gripe water twice daily. And take care of your diet also.
