  • My son is the king of fussing and the only thing that works is the "colic hold". Only your baby's doctor would know if its colic, but the colic hold helps me. Here's the link that may save your life,

  • I agree with the colic holds. Also try something called gripe water. It worked wonders with our son. Forget the gas drops. If it continues consult your doctor there may be something else going on

  • Gripe Water and Mylicon are great.

  • Try the 5 S's:
    Swaddle-Swaddling is the cornerstone of calming. It gives nurturing touch, stops flailing, and focuses your baby's attention

    Side - the side and stomach positions can calm your baby by switching his calming reflex on and his falling reflex (Moro) off

    SHHH - You must shhh loudly for it to soothe your crying baby THIS one really works for my son.

    Swinging - in your arms and side to side.

    Sucking - Sucking calms babies by satisfying their hunger and by turning on their calming reflex

    I find sometimes popping my son in his stroller or a carrier and going for a walk helps to distract him when he is fussy.

  • My son liked when i vaccuumed. The sound soothed him. He also loved being held and loved to eat. So I held him and fed him any time he wanted. (called nursing on demand)
