Hi dear , i m so sorry that u n baby r having such a hard time . Ya colic is real bad on little ones sometimes . It usually passes by around third or fourth month . My baby had it too . Real bad . I presume u r exclusively breast feeding . So feed on each side for not more than 20 mins . After that baby usually sucks on air which causes pain in stomach . My baby did a lot of comfort feeding during bad phases of colic. Pl ask ur dr for colic drops . I also avoided gassey foods in my own diet . . Have some musical toys around sometimes babies get distracted and it helps them soothe . Always bf the baby in slanting positon and pl do burp the baby after ever y feed. Rocking ur baby will also help to ease the crying caused by colic . My baby kept on crying n refused to feed so i rocked her n she slept . So from then on we started rocking her in severe episodes of colic . Also try a car drive . It helps to . Trust me all this can take a toll on u , so pl tk cr of ur self and do rest n nap with the baby . And yes tk the baby to the doctor if u still have problems . Its always beeter to rule out other possiblities . I hope ur baby feels better soon . I had a fisher price muscial toy which helped too . Lastly pl exclusively bf for six months. Take car . May god bless u and ur baby .
