  • My son had colic VERY bad for about 3 mths and what really helped us was I woild give him a warm bath, give him a dose o Gripe Water (its an herbal supplement that is safe for all ages and you can find it at a Wallgreens or most drug stores) and then put him in his swing until he fell asleep. It didn't always work but it got us through many nights. Good Luck.

  • Going for a walk and carrying my son in a sling. One of the only things that helped him. One time after an hour a walk he also suddenly burped..so i am wondering if most of the time he was colicky it was trapped wind!
