Hi team September 2011,
What a beautiful time of the year to have a baby
Our DS Mitchell was born on 16 September and is a beautiful little thing. We are first time parents so feel like we are a bit clueless with things!
Our boy has been displaying classic colicy behaviour and I wanted to impure if anyone had any experience with gripe water or othet remedies like that. Things have been a bit complicated fir us as he is not putting on weight as quickly as he should should so we are also having to top him up with formula after each breastfeed do he's really being filled to the brim.
I would love to hear about anyone else's experiences.

hi how u doing
i also have a colic baby
who basically just cries all day and nite
he is getting better though he is now 9 weeks and 5 days
i went to a peadiacrian cause all he was doing was crying all day and nite
and i also have a active nearly 5 year old
and i used everything people mentioned eg
and none seemed to help
the doctor put him on some losac,that seems to help abit
and i also use gripe water
and some natural herbal stuff that is made up from a chemist called blooms
that seems to help the best
its very hard and frustrating and very hard and emotional
but u not alone

I know this is a bit late, but thought I would share what I went through with my bub. My newborn was great, she did complain sometimes from colic but INFANT'S FRIEND is seriously.. the best thing ever invented! I found gripe water didn't really work. I also made sure her bassinett was on a slant to help her disgestion. Bub is 5 months now Hope all is well x

My midwife said to boil Fennel and feed the water to colic babies.
I have no idea of quantities etc, but might be worth looking into.
