Try boiling mint and fennel seed for ten minutes. Make sure it is cool before you mix with formula or breast milk. If breast milk id mix half half. Good luck.

Also pick up cocyntal in the colic section of the pharmacy. Its herbal and works better than gripe water or ovol. Baby madsage helps. My little guy was the same
