  • with my colicky child I bounced him all day long - or car rides, loud static in the car helped. mostly I held him and rocked him and cried with him the whole time - he had colic from day# 3 til 5 months. 14 hours a day..

  • Did he just get his first shots? If so, Tylenol should help.

  • Well, it is my theory that newborns are great the first month or two and then they wake up and don't like it! My daughter and nephew were both excellent babies up unitl the 3 wk. mark. All they did was sleep 20 hrs. a day-- unti they didn't! My daughter didn't calm down until about 4 mos.

  • In his bouncy seat on top of the dryer while it's running. The warmth, vibration and white noise work wonders.

  • My DS is also 2 months old and when he is just grouchy and whiney for what seems to be no reason and nothing else works.. i give him a warm bath followed by a warm bottle and he is good to go... usually falls right to sleep ;D
