In brief: Yes

Peppermint tea in small amounts especially can be helpful to digestion.
Probiotics can help. A homeopathic remedy called cocyntal may also help. It is generally more helpful to get to the bottom of why the baby has indigestion. It could be something in your diet if you are breastfeeding or formula issues if formula feeding.
