Answer: We did a couple of things that helped in colic : Burping in a up right position after feeding Massage, we did a lot of massages and they were great help. put a oil or cream on your handsand before touching your babies skin and be sure they are warm now bear in mind that you have to massage clockwise that is the direction of the intestines so clockwise give gentle tummy strockes - repeat five times also, you can clockwise move your hand in half circles on your baby tummy - repeat 5 times hold your baby’s knees together and gently bend his legs at kneed and push them in to his tummy and back again to initial position - repeat five times hold your baby’s legs and to gently the same movements as if your baby was cycling. - repeat 5 times. Do this all with time and gently. Massages can be done after the bath in a warm environment, and never after feeding the baby. We also did quick massages in each nappy change and it worked really well.
