She is a first time mom and her baby just crys all day long. I feel so bad because my kids were so easy and I think she keeps comparing. She is BF and I told her she can bring the baby over anytime and will keep her for a few hours and listen to her cry so she can have some peace. I was just wondering if any of you moms who had a colic baby have any advice on what helps? I want my sister to enjoy her new baby not dread her.Answer Question

She ay have an oversupply of milk and that can lead to a very fussy baby. Check out Oversupply
This is because baby gets too much sugar and not enough fat. Milk that is stored in the breasts (often called "foremilk") becomes thin, watery and high in milk sugar (lactose), while the milk that is freshly made (hindmilk) is higher in fat. The trouble with oversupply is that there is so much stored milk in the breast that the baby can't drink it all. He fills up on the thin, high-sugar milk and never gets to the satisfying, freshly made, higher fat milk.
The high-sugar milk quickly empties from baby's stomach, and soon after eating he acts like he's "starving" again. Also, the excess amounts of lactose irritate many babies' digestive systems, giving them gas and making them very fussy.
