  • Warning about Karo syrup...it's a botulism risk just like honey. Don't use it.

    What variety of "colic"? Just the constant crying? That can be the end-of-day effort to shut out stimuli in the only way baby knows, so you might try getting him into a more quiet atmosphere if that's the case.

  • really about the Karo syrup .. thats what the Doc told me to give him...however every doc seems to say something else...
    he just cries all the time... non stop

  • Ever try gas drops, they are safe and were very effective with my baby
