All moms of newborns understand that their babies are going to cry. They cry when they’re hungry, tired, and have a dirty diaper, the waterworks are on. We understand that it’s really the only way they have to express how they feel.
But no one can prepare you for those other moments — the moments (and hours upon hours) when your baby screams and cries for no particular reason whatsoever. It’s an awful feeling when you take your daughter to the pediatrician, convinced there is something seriously wrong with her, just to find out it’s colic.
And you know I’ve been there. Not just with one kid. Nope. Both.
Remy’s colic lasted until she was 5 months old. The soul-crushing screams of a baby that could not be calmed down were downright unbearable most times. Chad would come home from work and I wouldn’t even hesitate at just handing her off.
We tried ‘special holds,’ dietary restrictions, driving her around, bouncing her, rocking her, patting her, gas drops, etc. Nothing was working. A friend of mine suggested that we try using GERBER® Soothe® probiotic Colic Drops.
