get yourself 'Colief'available from pharmacies...google www.colief.com.read the testimonials...it doesnt work for everyone but i think anything is worth a try...we did and it worked for our little angel...good luck

i have tried these homeopathic pills called colic tablets by Hyland's. They seem to do the trick with the mylicon drops.

My baby boy likes to lay on his tummy and that seems to help. I also put Ovol Drops in his bottles. He is on Similac Sensitive formula for lactose intolerance as he can't handle regular formula. You might want to try it as it really has helped with both of my boys. They both couldn't handle my milk no matter what I tried. He also likes being "worn" as well. Hope some of these suggestions might help!

I'd try some gripe water, we used that and it seemed to help. Also Mylacon (I think thats how its spelled) You give that to them after each feeding and it helps prevent gas. Which can cause the pain in their little tummies.

there is realy not much you can do, but it helps alot if you roll up a recieving blanket and put it right in the lower tummy while your baby is laying on his tummy, it seems to help... and hold him skin on skin and push his legs up to his belly and pat hit butt..... i hope it gets better for ya

Well, my niece was collicky and it always helped to run the vacuum or to set her on the dryer--in her car seat, of course--and being watched! The carpets were always clean and clothes tended to get washed a lot sooner! They also have homeopathic colic tablets..I've never tried them. They are like the teething tablets. They won't hurt to try, anyway! Good luck!

I've heard a ton of extremely positive things about this book/technique: http://www.thehappiestbaby.com/ is the website, "The happiest baby on the block" is the book title. Assuming you're burping him left and right (gas is most common reason for colic)-- Have you tried swaddling (tying them in a little 'burrito wrap' with a blanket?) the tighter the better. Dante liked it for the first few weeks (now he's into waving his hands, though). Another idea is baby 'wearing'-- this is super helpful. Dante gets super fussy if I don't hold him (or wear him) for a good part of the day. It's the idea of the "fourth trimester,' where for the first 3 months of baby's life, they need to be super attached to their moms to feel best.

hi there, this website has 10 tips to help deal with a colicky baby



http://www.articlesbase.com/health-artic...



My little one tends to be colicky in the early evening i find a bit of water will help him burp and his dummy, then a bath with lavander oil in it, make the water a little warmer than normal it tends to settle them more.



hope this helps, good luck and know your not alone!
