Feel like i'm losing my mind...

I would love encouraging words telling me that colic does get better and I will be thru this before I know it :-)

  • This too shall pass. My child had it forever. Okay , well say 4-5 months, and I am proud to announce he is now 5 yrs old-so we both survived! :) big HUGGS!!!!

  • It really does get better. The better part of the first year was just awful with both my kids. I thought the colic would never end but it did. It's even more important to enjoy whatever few good moments you have right now. I know it's hard but hang in there.

  • It does get better. My son was colicky and one day I just noticed that it was over with. It was such a relief. Have you tried gripe water? It helped my son.

  • Yes i've tried so many formulas, pepcid , gripe water. I just think its time. Just like with my first son. It's funny I could tell someone that it will get better and these feelings are normal but i need to hear others telling me.

  • It will hon, I walked the floors with my DD for almost 4 months, it's hard for them as well. You'll be over it soon I hope.

  • My DD had colic too, it started getting better around 9 weeks and completely gone by 13 weeks, I used a white noise machine and it worked awesome!
