Oh I am so sorry! Mine was that way. My first suggestions are for YOU...
Put a big red circle around his 16 week "birthday" on your calendarâ€¦ by then, the colic should be greatly reduced or even gone. It's silly - but seeing that day get closer really helps.
When you are at your wits end, put him safely in his crib and go sit outside - even if it's just on your front door step. He's safe, now you need to recharge.
For the baby, I hate to tell you this but every colicky baby is different. You'll have to try lots of things and most will only work once.
Infant swings (mine hated it)
Gripe Water (so-so for me, good for hiccups)
Gas drops (no luck here)
White noise (pretty good for us - we used a CD called "For Crying Out Loud")
Check out the website www.colicshop.com for other ideas. You can get LOTS of ideas of things that worked for some other parent.
