As if new parents weren’t stressed out enough, the persistent cry of a colicky infant adds even more tension to a household with a brand-new baby around. Adding to the difficulty is the fact that there are plenty of not-so-helpful myths about colic and what to do about it.

Agreed, and the number one tip I learned: don't just settle for a diagnosis of colic. When my daughter was diagnosed with it a month or so ago, I was kinda dreading it. I knew she'd been having issues, but colic is basically a doctor's term for, "I don't know what's making him/her cry." I asked for any advice whatsoever and was given drops that were aimed at helping the colic. As things got worse every night and the both of us got less and less sleep, (I was practically hallucinating) I started kinda freaking out.
