Were all your babies fussy?

If you had a baby with colic, did the others have it, too? My DD is 4 mos and had colic in the beginning. She is still very hyper and fussy. I just wonder if my next baby will be this crazy!

  • I only can answer from my mom's experience. My sister was a colicy baby, but myself and my other two sisters were not. I believe it was my youngest child who had colic.

    There are different products on the market that can help calm a baby's stomach. Such as vibrating pads for her to lay on, wraps that vibrate, etc. That might help relax her and her stomach enough for her to feet comforted.

  • My first had colic, my second was the sleepiest, calmest little angel for the first few months.

  • my DD was collicy for about 4 days when I was eating dairy toward the beginning. Then I realized I needed to cut out dairy and I discovered gripe water. Now I give her gripe water if some dairy slips through in my diet and upsets her tummy. She's always been a very happy, alert baby :)
