lurking from Oct 2013PR. My ds also has/had terrible colic, all day, all evening, so awful. My boss came to visit at 4 weeks pp and I longed so bad to go back to work. Here's what worked for me:
- time: sorry, but this really helped. Crying peaked at 6-8 weeks and has been tapering off since then.
- Going dairy free: others here are totally correct, you need to go 3+ weeks to see if it makes a difference. I fought going dairy free for so long, but it did help. Just be careful and read all labels for milk products, butter, and whey. I've noticed a huge difference in DS. It didn't fix everything, but definitely helped. Trust me, if I can do it, you can too. I love cheese and being vegetarian it made up a huge portion of my protein. Also, I love cheese so much I spent $300 on a cheese making course for my birthday!!

Good luck, it's so hard! PM me if you want to chat, I'm just seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now and am happy to offer support.
