In brief: No
As a general rule no infant should be given anything other than breast milk or formula unless specifically recommended by the child's pediatrician.
The baby should be examined to determine the cause of the upset and then the doctor can give appropriate treatment.

No. You should consult with your pediatrician and get the baby examined to find out the cause of the problem and then you will get proper treatment.
