  • My baby had it bad, but i think it was only gas, so i got those bottles with the plastic inserts and you push the air out. It seemed to help her sleep better.

  • "The Happiest Baby on the Block," by Dr. Harvey Karp. We used to swaddle our son and bounce him on an exercise ball. Once he outgrew being swaddled, we would just bounce on the ball. He loved it.

  • oh, gosh, i hear ya!!!!
    i use gripewater, by Babybliss. its amazing!! my son gets terrible gas, and that helps a lot. is the colic from gas? mylicon works, but i don't like using it anymore. try bicycling your child's legs. or tummy massage helps get gas out. good luck and it'll pass.

  • My baby's not here yet, but one of my friends told me about her son having colic and the only thing that she could do to help was give him gas drops. Hope you find a solution soon!
