Thanks for posting your query.

What is your child is having is infantile colic and that is absolutely normal.

This occurs in most of the infants till 4 months of age.

Please do the following which should help.

Make sure to burp the baby after feeding every time.
Make her lie on her stomach when her stomach is empty.
Ask mother to take light diet and avoid high fatty foods and maize products.She need to drink plenty of fluids.
Give colic aid drops before feed up to 3-4 times in a day.
Please avoid giving cyclopam drops.

This is thing which will go with time and there is nothing to worry about. Some discomfort while passing stool is normal.

I hope this helps.

Please write again if you have something more to ask.
