I had that problem too for the first 6 months. Nothing I did helped, she would pull her legs up into her tummy and just scream! I'm sorry I can't remember the name exactly, but they were homeopathic granules which you can buy from a chemist/pharmacist. Just one little spoon of these on her tongue, and the transformation was amazing! these helped almost instantly, I would highly recommend this as a remedy. Unfortunately there isn't a 'cure' for colic and they're not sure what causes it either, it's a build up of tiny air bubbles in their tummies. it's something that will pass, as I said it was about 6 months with my girl. Do you use a dummy? Colicky babies tend to need the sucking action too, and works as a great comforter. I also got anti-colic teats for her bottles if you use them, they reduced the amount of air she was taking in whilst feeding. I hope this helps, and I promise it will get better x
