Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Colic quite common among infants. It can result irritability and child may cry excessively. You can give dicyclomine drops eight to drops when needed. Avoid maternal drugs that may predispose to colics through breast milk. Watch for constipation, which might cause colics. If symptoms are severe, consult a pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
