During the first few months in the life of a newborn, parents often face the challenge of relieving colic.
The baby's intestine is not yet developed. So, even though it's only breast milk, they still cannot digest it well. Also while feeding, they tend to swallow air, which gets trapped. Read how to burp your baby.
Colic very commonly occurs. The following concoction can be very effective as a remedy:
Take any oil (preferably castor oil) and add a pinch of asafoetida (find this in any Indian store). Make a paste and rub around the baby's belly button. Leave it to dry.
You will be surprised to notice how effectively it manages colic. So, your baby can comfortably sleep and so can you.
