What is Colic?

Colic is similar to a gas problem; babies sometimes swallow air during crying and feeding, which makes gas bubbles in their tummy and cause gas and pain in babies.



If your baby has a gas problem, then he/she will feel irritated, uncomfortable, and will put his/her legs up. All babies have gas problems during the initial months especially from 2nd to 4th months. Babies feel uncomfortable and cry a lot.

Many old ladies suggest to give ghutti or some other home remedies, but please avoid giving anything to your baby as it may affect their digestive system. Here are some tips which I followed and it helped me a lot.
