Pediatrician 's  Response
ur baby may be crying due to infantile cloic, common cold, earache, but more probably due to infantile colic. are u give burping to ur baby after every feed. in bottle feed baby nore chance of aerophagia & more chance of infantile colic. to prevent this keep bottle vertically during feeding & remove bottle whenever slightly milk remain in it & the hole of nipple not much small or not much large. start burping practice after each feed.
apply heeng (assafoitida) paste on abdomen. give drop xymex 5 drops 2-3 times daily for 15 days. breast feeding is best for baby & mother. try it . if baby not accept than give feed by spoon.
