Q. Hi Ma,  Can I do anything to prevent Colic in my newborn baby, who is exclusively breastfed ?

New Mom   

Ans.  Hi New Mom, First of all, congratulations on becoming a mom. One of the main reasons of Colic is considered to be gas. Also, make sure you burp the baby after every feed. Since the baby is breastfed, you will have to alter your own diet to reduce food which causes gassiness, like oily and fatty food. There are few home remedies which you can try. 

1)      Take 1 litre of water in a pan.

2)      Add 1 tablespoon of ajwain (carom seeds).

3)      Boil this water for 5 minutes till you get nice ajwain smell and flavour.

4)      Strain this and cool. Store in a bottle.

5)      Drink it throughout the day.

Another recipe is as follows :

1)      Take 1 litre of water in a pan.

2)      Add 1 tablespoon of saunf (fennel seeds).

3)      Boil this water for 5 minutes till you get nice saunf smell and flavour.

4)      Strain this and cool. Store in a bottle.

5)      Drink it throughout the day.

Ajwain and saunf both helps in digestion and are known to help baby.
