My baby is two months old and she cries alot. We found out that she is colicky. What is the best way to "cure" colic? I mean, I feel so helpless when she cries non-stop. Her pedia says its normal but do you have any suggestions?

Our granddaughter is part asian and cannot handle milk. We found a good DR. who gave her a liquid that helped her. She is 12 now but drinks very little milk. I feel bad for you and the baby because i would cry with my granddaughter, i knew her pain. I wish i could help more. Please take care Allyzha.

Is it the gripewater? I actually asked about it to my pedia and she said that it is not available in our country and is common in Canada.

Oh really? what country are you in? In Michigan I have seen it in Krogers since so many people like to use it.

Im not sure about this. You could try searching it on the internet. I'l ask my friend who's a pedia too about this. By the way allyzha, I referred you. Thanks.

Is she bottle fed? If she is, you may want to try switching the type of bottle that you are using. The Playtex Vent-Aire bottle is good. Its got little holes on the bottom that help eliminate extra air being swallowed. The Playtex Drop-in bottles work well too; after you fill the drop in with milk you can squeeze any excess air out before feeding it to your baby. Good luck!!

Here are two things that worked great for me! Take a recieving blanket, put it in the dryer for about 20 minutes. Then take it out (you have to do this quickly) and fold in in half, then fold it over again so it's long and skinny. Wrap your baby's belly in it, and wrap it TIGHT, not too tight, but tight. Wrap him in another the regular way, pretty snug and she should go right to sleep without you having to hold him... If that doesn't work, I put my daughter on her belly across my knees and would bounce my legs gently and pat from the top of her back to her bottom then back up again...somehow it makes them burp A LOT! Good luck! I hope one or both of those work for you! Congrats on the new baby!
