I've been seeing a lot of questions lately on colic. My personal feeling is that colic is doctor speak for "We dont know what's wrong, he/she'll outgrow it; just wait it out." Which I find unacceptable. I believe there is always a reason behind infant crying. Maybe they want held, upset tummies, etc. My first course of action when DS was 3 weeks old was to take him to a chiropractor and it worked wonders. So I'm wondering who has had a colicky baby, what if anything worked for you, and what, exactly, do you think "colic" is?

I thinks it wiring error in the still-developing brain.
My older son had colic. There was NOTHING that would comfort him when he was crying. I held him, fed him, changed him, tried to soothe him, etc. He would just scream and scream and scream for hours on end. It was like clockwork. At exactly 11pm no matter if he had just been fed, changed or gone to sleep he would suddenly start wailing. He would scream, cry or whimper until 2am and then it would just shut off. Like a switch being flipped. He would suddenly yawn and go back to sleep. It was every single night. There is no way he was just having gas at exactly 11pm-2am every single night.
