  • My son had colic for 4 months. The only things that worked for him (i tried just about everything) were laying him face down with his chin in my hand and his body along my arm with his legs dangling on either side. Also I bought a blanket called a miracle blanket (and it was my miracle lol) that helps to swaddle the baby easier. I think you can buy those types of blankets just about anywhere now. They are usually just called swaddlers or something along those lines. You can wrap them much tighter than a traditional blanket and the tighter the better (or so it seems) when it comes to colic. Good Luck!! Colic is definately no fun but it will get better I promise!
