Colic: Parents' Experience

“My baby's colicky days were horrible and I thought it would never end! It started from about the first or second week he was born and it stopped finally right when he hit the 3 month mark. He would start crying around the early evening hours until sometimes 1 or 2 am. We tried everything but what I found to really work for me was gripe water, recommended by a pediatrician. Sometimes I would also put him in the stroller and go for a walk --  he would be calm and fast asleep after that. Putting pressure on his stomach while swaying him worked, so did laying him on a warm water bottle.” – Shahela Begum, Queens, NY
