  • I'd tell the doctor. No child should be screaming for an hour

  • Both of my kids did that, it perfectly normal and its not colic. Its called the witching hour. Babies grow out of it after a few months. My sisters babies did the same thing. Gripe water doesnt seem to help much.

  • Yes, I remember our kids being fussy at that time of day. it will pass. Hold her and reassure her. Stay calm and just talk her through it.

  • Colic, my son did the exact same thing, it will go away on it's own! Sadly theres nothing u can do to take that away, just give her extra loving! My son liked it when I would hold him tummy down! GL!

  • That sounds a lot like colic talk to her doctor. I knew a little boy that had it and he would do that everyday for at least 3 or 4 hrs at a time
