  • I know when my son was colic our doctor told us to use gripe water, his lasted about 3 weeks. But I have heard of babies being colic for as long as 3-4 months!
    Good Luck!

  • Gripe water is used to treat upset tummies.
    Colic is fussieness with no known cause. It could be from gas. It could be from a sublixation at birth. It coud be hunger. It could be that the formula or mom's diet is upseting their stomachs. It could be many, many things. The trick is to figure out what it is. Babies dont cry for no good reason, and "colic" is no good reason.
