Colic is a killer!! I did a combo of establishing a bath & bedtime routine, chiropractor for the colic (very very effective for us) and pro-biotic treatment. My son was given antibiotics after he was born & I was on a course after a Caesarian & as I was breastfeeding it upset his stomach. You can also try propping up the head end of your baby's crib/cot/bassinet. I went against all recommendations and put bub to sleep on his belly. I had a movement monitor so I wasn't worried and he always had a strong neck to move his head. You might have to try a few things!

We got our son one of those soothing sound projectors and it calms him a lot when he has a bad night. We originally got a winnie the pooh soothing sound plush that can attach to his carrier or crib or stroller for on the go. They both work wonders for our son. Hope this helps.

Try adding a little baby cereal to his warm milk it'll get him full & he'll rest easier n more peaceful!
