It is so hard watching and listening to your baby - knowing they are in pain. My first child had colic, I did my best with all the baby massage and colic drops, that's all you can do (as far as I know). She will grow out of it, probably around 3 months old. Probably no consolation now as she is so young, I hope you can find an effective remedy.

Ella had it for a grand total of 4 hours and it was hell. Abbie however was so bad with it, we couldn't even walk into the room holding a bottle before she started screaching in pain. We tried everything - infacol (totally useless), Dentinox (also useless), Colycynth granules (very expensive but people swear by them and worked a little. £8 a tiny bottle from boots.) We eventually tried changing to comfort formula, which didn't help at all either. Finally at a lost cause we used a combination of colycynth granules and Colief! What a difference! Katie had it at the same time, although not nearly as bad as Abbie. so had 2 of them screaming at same time.
They hit 3 months (corrected age as 6 weeks prem) and it all stopped over night :) I now have 2 happy wee babas again.
Hope it all goes away soon chick. It is awful, but it does go away. We tried everything - not caring about the cost just to help the wee girlies.
hmmmmmmmmm will check in a bit if we have anything left and will post it to you if you want.

Aww bless its awful seeing them in pain :( Lewis never had it but my neice did. She was prescribed colief? I think it was? Could be wrong in the name and spelling but that seemed to ease her pain.
