COPING WITH COLIC

All you can do if your baby has evening colic is learn to live with it, in the certain knowledge that he isn't ill or abnormal, and that the colic won't last. Don't suffer alone: this will be a difficult three months for YOU, your partner and your baby. Remember these three points:
  • Do whatever you can to try to soothe your baby. Keeping him in motion, offering frequent feeds, rubbing his tummy, may all soothe him for a short while.
  • Don't resort to medicines. You can't cure his colic, so you will be giving your young baby doses of medicine for no real purpose. However, gripe water is harmless and comforts some babies.
  • Try to have an evening out. You can leave your partner or a trusted relative in charge.
