Baby Gas Pains: How to Help Your Baby - Page 2

Try infant massage: Lie the baby down on his or her back and massage their tummy with your fingertips, rubbing in small, gentle, clockwise circles beneath their ribcage and down to their diaper area.

Use a gas aid: With your doctor’s approval, try gas aids such as simethicone (sold as Mylicon) to break up the gas bubbles; or gripe water, a natural homeopathic remedy with herbs to aid digestion.

Of course if your baby is still struggling, seek advice from your doctor. If you are worn out from caring for a fussy infant, find someone who can give you a short break. And remember, above all, that this is just a brief phase that will pass as their digestive system matures. Soon the crying will become a distant memory that will be replaced by smiles and happy cooing.
