My son is 51 days old and on mixed feed. Two days before yesterday he wasn't able to sleep whole and cranky ..same happened simultaneously two night of next days. I consulted doc he said may be it's coz of sum colic prob. Friends I need to ask is it any one else too who is facing same. Currently i am giving neopeptine drops prescribed by per.

Hi priti, i faced same problem for 1.5 months as my baby was also on mixed feed. Actually some babies are not able to digest top feed. I gave her colicaid and neopeptine as and when required along with some home remedies like applying heeng mixed in water on feet nails and navel, putting warm cloth on stomach and light massage on tummy with warm mustard oil having heeng and ajwain. But all this gave temporary relief. Then doctor gave Neosmile drops to be put in top feed every time. That was when she got relief. Then after she did not get that problem.
But i wanted to stop Neosmile too as its not good to give medicine on a regular basis. So i did homeopathic treatment for about a week and stopped all medicines. After a week stopped homeopathic also and my baby is not facing any problems now. No medicine also (touch wood) and thank God for that coz i had a lot of trouble initially due to this colic issue.

Hi, the best solution out here is to place the baby on his tummy, for 10-15 mins, this activity actually helps in releasing gas. My baby is also on mix feed. I do this activity once a day.. ideally you should do it twice, thrice.. believe me it really helped me to a great extent..

Hi mommy
Relax, I faced it with my second child... It happens.. Burp your baby after every feed well, give feeds as per the prescribed limits of feed on the carton label. Also keep the baby's head lil elevated during feeds. Do cycling movements with the legs while tummy time to aid in colic. Neopeptine will ease out colic.
