Abdominal cramps

Pranav cried last night continuously for over 2 hours. This is the first time this has happened so we didn't know what to do. Tried a lot of things like feeding him, comforting him, rocking and walking him but nothing worked. I got so tired at the end that there was no energy and patience to take it any further. He would start all over again. Mom applied vasambu ( native medicine) over his tummy but that didn't work. Luckily I remembered the Paediatrician mentioning that if ever your baby cries for long one of the reasons could be stomach pain. In which case, you can give "Colimex" drops. So dad and Pravin found a medical shop at 11:30 p.m. and got this. After giving 5 drops of this, he settled down a bit and slept soon afterward. What a relief when a crying baby goes to sleep! Sometimes, it helps when your Paediatrician prescribes in advance for possible causes such as this.
