Hai... This is Dr.Sumanth from India. First thing I want to assure you that nothing serious is going on in the baby. The most common reason for this colic is swallowed air which distends bowels. Sometimes some babies drink eagerly causing air to be gulped in...especially more so in bottle feeding. The air thus gone in has to come out either as belching or as flatus. The best way to prevent this is by burping him post feeds. Happy to help anytime. If you are happy with my reply, kindly rate it.
