  • he could just have gas and cant get it out.. just try to relieve that if that doesnt work just let him cry for a few minutes to calm your self down then pick him up and comfort him again it always works for me

  • Did you give him gas drops too?? You know it's a rather uncomfortable feeling when you're bloated and gassy. Just have to wait it out mama. Let dad or family take him for awhile so you can de stress

  • My children get fussy from food I eat like dairy(I breastfeed). If he is formula feed has he recently tried a new brand? Or a new food? If he is on dairy based try soy based or vise versa. Could it be gas? Pump his legs. You could try gripe water or Infants' Mylicon for gas.

  • Not sure how old is too old for colic but my son cried ALL Day for 6 months then most of the days til he was 1 - ask for help, walk away if you know he's ok - take a breather - have a glass of wine or something to help relax you - I had the worlds toughest child I swear to everything!!! Its ok to get frustrated but they truly aren't doing it to make you mad. relax... just hang in there.
