my son has colic and is the same age the best thing that worked for him was the dr. brown's bottles and enfamil nutrimegin formula the formula is pricey but it works like it says within 24 hours my son actually plays before he would scream and scream and we couldnt console him

my little girl has colic (started everynight at 7 sharp) and i tried everything under the sun until one night i just put her in her swing and put in a disney movie for her & let her be. whenever she gets fussy thats what i do and it always calms her down and eases her to sleep.

I'm new to this, so I am not exactly sure what colic is. I have been told that it is when the baby coughs alot. Is that true? The advice I have been given to avoid that is to use the Dr. Brown's bottles bc they prevent colic. Now if colic is truly the baby having a continuous cough, then those bottles definitely work! My son is 2 months old and hasn't coughed yet.... well outside of being greedy and trying to drink is bottle fast! LOL

theres this product called baby bliss in the baby esile... my daughter can have a fusy day upset tummy gas hiccups this stuff works wonders as soon as i give it to her she stops cryin the its bright eyes alertness and smiles or sometimes sleep... i dont know if when you were at the hospital after ur baby was born but nurses give fussy babys or baby boys when there cercumsized this stuff called sweeties its concintrated sugar water and it releases endorphines in the babys brain that relaxes them... well baby bliss is just that what the professionals use jjust in the store and the ingrediants are a ginger extract everythings all natural soo no worys there just look at any cvs wallgreens rite add in the baby esile its between 10-12$ im tellin you its one of the best most helpful things ive discoverd if you do try it which i really recommend let me know ur thoughts

I have had 2 colicy babies. The 1st settled when rocking her to a lulluby cd and the 2nd is the blow dryer. Turn on the blow dryer and she settles and falls asleep. Both also were colicy bc of over stimulation so covering their face with a blanket while rocking them in the dark always seems to work. Stick in there it doesn't last forever!

Hi Mel, I have heard that if a baby is colic try taking them to a chiropractic Dr. My aunt had a baby that was colic and she took her, somthing to do with the back being out of place. It worked for her, I am not saying that it works for everyone. but there is no harm in trying. Good luck!
