u can use little warm oil to massage the baby. do cycling motions and put light pressure on tummy. that will help relive any gas.

give tummy time as much as possible.

u can give a bath also if its accoridng to wheather. it will help relax the baby.

u can play some light music or take him for a stroll ourzide. change in enviornment helps a grt deal sometimes

Hi. Do remember to give baby some tummy time. Make baby lie flat on the tummy. Sufficient burping too. You can also give gripe water

Avani Tulapurkar

give massage and tummy time.
play some good instrumental music or nursery rhymes
as suggested by other moms...bathe him or sponge with lukewarm water

Hi, I went through the same with my daughter. I used to give her colic aid at around 4 pm and then depending on the time she had taken feed I would then give her tummy time, tummy massage with oil which my doctor had taught during baby massage session. specially scooping hands and moving it from her tummy to downwards area. apply hing with warm water near naval area.

Hina, along with massage and warm bath, I would also suggest start with babywearing.
Babies tend to get colicky in the evening hrs and research has shown that when babies are worn during day time in ergonomic baby carriers their crying is reduced by 56% in the evening hrs.... the position helps relieve gas, ease in digesting food (milk in his case) and also babies who are worn tend to sleep quicker and longer.
Worn babies are calmer and more relaxed.
And when babies are calm and relaxed, their energy is spent in growing and gaining weight, rather than being cranky and crying.
All the best.

What is babywearing ??

Anirudh B Balotiaa

what does worn baby means?

Kaushal Sovani

OK so Babywearing means wearing/carrying ur baby in an ergonomic baby carrier, like a Ring Sling, Stretch Wrap or a Woven Wrap, Meh Dai, Soft Structured Carrier (SSC) etc.
You get many varities of carriers in the market
Apart from hands-free convenience, Babywearing also enables bonding in the initial weeks, aids breastfeeding, improves baby's and mother's overall health. It helps reducing in PPD (postpartum depression). Studies have shown it reduces crying by 43% in a newborn and also eases colic and reflux, aids digestion due to appropriate positioning.
You can look up for articles on Babywearing, for more information, in the article section
