Continue to nurse, at at least a 30 degree angle, avoid over feeding, burp mid and after the feeding. If the baby is feeding to quickly, slow the feeding. Monitor temperature and continue to use infant colic remedies.

A colicky baby is difficult and can inspire despair in the nursing mother. Persist, and keep breastfeeding. If the baby continues to gain weight and have wet diapers, you are doing a great job! As well as giving your baby the ideal food for a human baby. Offer the breast frequently and allow the baby to rest between. If however, baby appears ill, seek medical attention. Best wishes.
