Take a wash cloth and wring it out in really warm water or put in micro-wave. Put wet washcloth in a plastic bag and put on her tummy. The warmth seems to relax the baby and her tummy muscles. When my babies were little I had a little hot water bottle for this issue but loaned it to a friend and never got it back. :-(

How old is the baby"? Could she be constipated?

Have you tried laying her face down over your arm for a while? Put her head by your elbow and her arms and legs will dangle down. The pressure of her weight on your arm might help push it out. Here's a pic if I haven't explained this right!

All these suggestions are great. My little girl used to prefer holds like the one Michelle M. suggested and also to be held with your hand on her chest near her chin to support the head with her bottom on the crook of your elbow. Similar to the hold Michelle described but opposite so that she can be upright. We also did the bicycling and gripe water. Luckily this phase only lasted a few weeks but they were the longest weeks of my life. Also, weather permitting, going outside seemed to stop the screaming like a switch.

Congrats on the new baby girl!!! I'm sorry this is going on. It sucks to have a baby crying and not being able to help her!

it could be that you are giving her TOO much stuff and her body just can't handle it. If you have given her mylacon AND gripe water - it's just too much.

It could be she has reflux as well...are you breast feeding or formula feeding? If BF - what are you eating? if you are eating foods that cause gas - cauliflower, broccoli, etc. - she is getting the gas from you. If you are formula feeding - maybe it's not the formula for her.

There are soo many things that it could be. First in foremost in my mind? You are trying to give her TOO much and her body just can't handle it.

Take her to her pediatrician. It may be her milk making her so gassy and if so her formula will need to be changed. Also, there are prescription gas drops that work much better than Mylicon - I found this out with my youngest child when she was an infant....worked for her.

Hope this helps!
