Ingredients: Fennel seeds, Water.
Instructions: Boil the fennel seeds for 5mins, cool the water and give frequent sips to the affected child, fennel is a natural and gentle herb that has a sort of aniseed flavour and is not unpleasant, it will cure the colic and help the baby to sleep. Also placing the baby tummy down on a warm (not hot) hot water bottle is also soothing and will stop the colicky cramps. Colic is the immature gut trying to digest baby milk and it goes into spasms - Breast is Best ladies !

Just plain asoefetida. You can get it in powder form or small clusters in any indian store. You might not like the smell too much but believe me its very beneficial. Just a take a pinch of asoefetida in a tablespoon of water and heat it over the gas.Then when its luke warm dip a cotton ball in it and place it on the baby's belly button. fix it so that it is covered by the diaper so it doesn't move. Leave it on for abt 30 mins. You will see the baby will feel much better and go to sleep.Date: Sunday,
