Pediatrician 's  Response
I appreciate your concern.
Infantile colic is a common problem in newborns. from first weeks to first 4 months of age,
we usually follow rule of three ,infant cries for more then 3 hours a day,at least 3 times a week,in 3 months need not to worry much till she is active. symptoms will subside as she will grow older.
keep her in prone position for most of time,but do not leave unattended.
do proper burping after every feed.
mothers diet also play some role,so you should avoid gas producing foods.
In case symptoms get more distressing i advise you to consult your pediatrician.
Your daughter will be fine,
God bless.
