soothing a colicking baby
 
well ive been dealing with a real colic-master here... and is getting really tiring. I have tried different ways and he just hangs onto me all the time and wont fall asleep in his own bed without a fight. Gas and pooping really gives him a hard time. I found this on YouTube and it actually worked! :D just sharing.. maybe it helps someone else too. The video is truly creepy tho... i love the top comments :D

My oldest had colic and for 3 months, every night st 5, the screaming would start. It was awful. Really truly awful. I gave her mylicon drops, dh and I would hold her in a hammock made out of a blanket and swing her back and forth. That worked but when we stopped the screaming would continue. Then I discovered the happiest baby on the block. The shooshing /shaking /swaddling worked wonders!

Thank you for sharing! This works great, I tried it today. Lily stopped fussing almost immediately.

The top comments are funny!

Holy crap that works well! Rose was out within 3 minutes. I also have a 1 hr mp3 of in utero sounds that I will play for her and it works pretty good but this worked faster.

So I played it while Jo was screaming. He stopped screaming so he could hear it and then got a grouchy face and cried harder. LOL. I guess I have a tough crowd here.

I just wanted to thank you for sharing this. I googled that video and book and finally got to watch it today. All week I struggled with a fussy baby who would not stay asleep when I put him down and I watched that video. I tried the techniques while watching it and my baby has been sleeping by himself for over 2 hours! I haven't had a free arm in 3 weeks unless we did the sling but he weighs so much that hurts my back.

Anyone else dealing with a baby that fusses or doesn't want to be put down, get this now!
