2. Gas in the stomach: Some times babies cry when they have gas in the stomach (colic). This is a very difficult situation. If the baby has gas in the stomach and you try to feed the baby or walk with him, he may continue to cry. The best way to do solve this problem is to carry the baby with your two hands, but his face looking down. Walk with the baby in the room with the baby in this position. You will see that baby stops crying. Atleast it worked for my children.
