My son is 13 weeks old and was diagnosed with colic in his 3rd week. We tried different formulas (suggested by his pediatrician) until we finally found one he would tolerate Alimentum, in thew purple can. Some days the crying isn't so bad and other days (like today) we can't seem to calm him down. We have tried Mylicon and a warm bath and just holding him close and nothing seems to work. Does anyone else have experience with colic? I'd like to know what you did to comfort your baby and how old your baby was when itgot better. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 21 month old daughter and neither of them cried like this. It makes me feel like a bad mom when i can't get my son to feel comfortable. Any feedback on your experience would be greatly appreciated. ThanksAnswer Question

Happiest Baby on the Block. Seriously amazing stuff. They even have a DVD if you need something to watch (my three kids keep my hands pretty full lol) Neither of my other two had colic either. It sure is something else huh?? You are doing great though to ask for help- I know how frustrating it can be! Happiest Baby worked for us. Also ask the ped because they may be able to put your baby on Zantac. That totally helped my little girl. Just for a run down: Dr. Karp suggests: Swaddle, Hold baby on his side, Shhhing really loudly (noise in the womb is similar to a vacuum cleaner sound's level on the outside!) and slightly giggling/swaying. It's good stuff for calming babies who don't seem to want to calm down for anything!
