9. Chamomile Tea

A 2007 study review by the American Academy of Pediatrics found that chamomile tea can help eliminate colic in infants. Chamomile is known for its antispasmodic and sedative properties that help relieve intestinal cramping and induce relaxation.

  1. Put ½ teaspoon of dried chamomile flowers in a cup and pour boiling water over it.
  2. Cover and steep for 10 minutes.
  3. Strain and allow it to cool to room temperature.
  4. Feed this tea in small doses (1 teaspoon) to your baby throughout the day.

A breastfeeding mother can also drink a cup of chamomile tea 2 or 3 times a day.

Note: Do not feed more than 2 to 4 ounces of chamomile tea to infants. Avoid strong chamomile tea as well.

10. Peppermint

Due to its calming and antispasmodic properties, peppermint helps reduce flatulence and other digestive conditions in infants.

  • Add 2 drops of peppermint oil to 1 tablespoon of any baby massage oil. Massage your baby’s abdominal area with it using gentle circular motions. Do this at least 2 times daily.
  • Alternatively, put 1 teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves in a cup of boiling water. Allow it to steep for 10 minutes, then strain it. Breastfeeding mothers can drink this tea 2 or 3 times a day.

Additional Tips

  • Let your baby lie on his or her tummy for 15 to 20 minutes daily.
  • Breastfeeding mothers should include probiotic yogurt in their diet to improve their own as well as their baby’s digestive system.
  • Playing soothing music is another way to calm a colicky baby.
  • Keep your baby in motion to stop him or her from crying.
  • Try putting your baby down to sleep.
  • Changing your baby’s milk formula can also help.
  • A pacifier or repetitious sounds like the noise of a fan or humidifier can be helpful for a colicky baby.
  • Feed your baby as often as needed and do not forget about the burping.
  • Breastfeeding mothers should eat a healthy diet and avoid stimulants such as caffeine and chocolate. You can also consult your baby’s doctor and consider changing your diet for 2 weeks to eliminate certain foods like dairy products and nuts to rule out the possibility of an unknown allergy in your baby.
  • Hold your baby as upright as possible during feeding.

Make sure to call your pediatrician if you cannot calm your baby and he or she is crying continuously for hours.

  1. My niece has a very fussy baby. She can cry for long periods of time after eating. Otherwise, she is very healthy. I believe she is about 4 months old now, maybe 5. She is getting some thicker foods, I didn’t think she’d be ready for. She is not being nursed for wuit awhile either. (To each his own). Any special things I can recommend? Warning: she comes from a heavy Italian family.

  2. The best home remedy for treating colic in newborns is babies magic tea. I have used this formula for my little one with great success.
