Colic + 6 Week growth spurt = a nightmare!


Yep we're still dealing with the colic... as you can see neither Holden nor Mommy nor Daddy are very happy about it! We have become experts on all things colic now and are desperately looking for the magic cure. We've found a concoction of gripe water called Colic Calm which is supposed to work wonders and they offer a 100% money back guarantee so I think I will order it. It's pretty pricey but if it doesn't work at least we can get a refund.

We've tried everything you can imagine... we even tried the classic "bourbon in the bottle" a few drops and we didn't really seem to notice a difference. The only thing that will stop his screaming fits is putting him in the tub. At 2 am the other morning we were running the water over his head and hubby looked at me and said "So... how long do we do this for??" I just laughed... "Uh until the water heater runs out!"

No tips but I wanted to say that I hope the colic calms down soon! I've heard good things about Colic Calm gripe water, so give it a shot! We have gripe water for Aidan's hiccups (he hiccups so hard he spits up all of his formula!) and it works wonders. :)

They say that running a vaccum or washing machine helps calm a colicky baby, because it reminds them of beinging in the womb. Good luck!

We had a colic baby and used probiotics. Made a huge difference!
