How did you get through the mental exhaustion of a colic baby? How long did your baby take to outgrow it?

This post is over 5 years old. Please to not encourage mother's to administer tea of any sort to their newborn. It is not approved by the AAP nor FDA.

Why are you waiting to outgrow it? Try babies magic tea and also use it by yourself if you breastfeed your baby and get out of this freaky tummy bug.

3 months of hell. He'd cry from midnight to 4 am every night, and his older brother got up at 6am. Amazed I lived....

my daughter was colicky, my doctor told me to go to a pharmacy and ask about biogaia drops, they worked wonders, within 2 days of the drops she slept easily and the crying disappeared

Hi sweety, My 2nd baby was like that and I found that warm baths and lotion baby rub downs helped a lot. I know it is going to seem like you are always giving your baby a bath, but don't use soap every time. It was just something about the warm water and then the lotion seem to do the trick. I did this for like 2 weeks and before I knew it, it just all went away.. The crying that is... I hope this will help you too.. Stay strong it will not last forever..



PS> When doing the lotion, go slow and just hum or talk softly to the baby.. You want every thing around him or her to be calm...

Myy daughter suffered with colic and reflux until she was put onto solids by her doctor at 10 weeks. A product called Infacol does help with colic given before each feed and is usable from birth. It is very tiring so get some help during the day so you can try and catch up on some sleep.
