How to deal with a Colic-y baby
December 19, 2006 12:46am CST
My daughter, who is a month old now, has had sever colic and digestive problems since birth. She cries almost constantly, and both my wife and me are close to a breakdown due to stress and lack of sleep. Does anybody here have any recommendations how to help our baby recover and sleep better? We have already taken her to a couple of doctors, but nothing has helped, yet.

Hi there I have been through that myself. Has she seen a doctor? Can they suggest anything. I have herd of two herbal wind drops but don't know if the are for that young. One was made by blackmores the other is called gripe water. Do you have a good family or friend who can take over for an hour or so? I know putting bubby accross my lap on her belly helped some and rubbing the belly clock wise also helped.

My daughter had colic though it was not as serious as yours. She'd stop crying when I held her in an upright position, i.e. supporting her neck and bottom against my chest. The paediatrician recommended soy milk to replace cow milk for indigestion. Good luck.
