Colicky Babies

Having a colicky baby is rough. The hours of screaming, sleepless hours, and not being able to comfort them with their pain. Seeing your baby cry breaks your heart too. If anyone has tips to help babies with colic please don't hesitate to post.

I thought my son was just colicky but it turns out he had bad reflux. He was ebf and didn't have the typical signs - no spitting up, no pulling legs into tummy. He would just cry and cry for hours.…Continue

My Lo loves to be held....it stops her from crying and if holding her over my shoulders it allows her.to pass gas if she has too.

Hey, I'm Leslie. I've had not one, but two colicky babies! My first isn't a baby anymore and is mostly over the collic (thank The Lord. Lol). But now I have a new little girl and she's worse than what my son was. I have to keep her upright just to keep her asleep. It's exhausting.

I found that probiotics for kids work. I use cultrell and its safe to use at any age.

I am a mother to a colicky baby, he is 15 weeks old, born on July 14, 2011, the things I have heard that can help with colic are stirring the formula (if you use formula) in the bottle instead of shaking it, gripe water/gas drops are a charm. I love little tummys by little remedies, it works like a charm. Purified water is always a plus, my husband and I use a Brita tap water purifier, and looking for certain formulas to help colic and fussiness is always a plus, for an example, similac alimentum. He is still a tad bit colicky, but, we are finally on the verge of overcoming it!

Biogaia are over-the-counter infant probiotics.  They must be refrigerated so you might have to ask for them at the pharmacy counter or even have the pharmacy order them for you.

I have never heard of that but I will try it. Can you get it anywhere or just by a doctor.

I am a pharmacist.  My son started to present with colic-type symptoms and I started him on Probiotics (Biogaia infant drops).  Probiotics are the only thing proven to help with colic.  He started taking them at 4 weeks old and by 6 weeks was sleeping through the night and no more fussiness.  He is a very happy baby.  I have recommended it to several of my new mom patients and they have seen the same positive results.

Hi, my son is 16 weeks and he has colic. I feel so bad for him since nothing really seems to help. I haven't been around a colicky baby and a lot of mommies don't know what to do to try to help. If you have any tips or questions just post. :)
