Babies have an immature digestive system and also tend to swallow a lot of air with their food. Both contribute to colic. Gentle massage on the back, around the area of the spine, working from the bottom to the neck and pinching the spine very gently can help with colic significantly. Do this every day, and it should alleviate the problem. If the colic problem is severe, consult a Chinese Medicine practitioner, who will prescribe some Chinese herbs.
