You can give him simethicone drops for the gas. They are cheap and over the counter. Are you nursing? I limited dairy and dark greens (but then supplemented my own calcium) and that seems to help. Lay baby on his back and bicycle his legs to help get the gas moving. If he is on formula, maybe you need a different kind? He may just be colicky and that really just has to be waited out. How do you know he is cramping? What is he doing?
