How to Survive a Baby with Colic
Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
This is key. When your baby is constantly crying it can really wear on you. It’s ok to ask for someone to come and help you with the baby. People love holding babies so ask a friend or family member to come by and get a little break, even if it’s just a well needed nap.

Wear your baby
Wearing my colicky babies was a life saver. They needed to be held constantly which meant I always had my hands full. Once I started using my wrap it made my life so much easier.
Feedings can be tough
Whether you feel that is your doctor, mother, or best friend, don’t be afraid to ask them for suggestions. I know it helped me by asking my seasoned Mom friends on what I could do to help my little ones through this colic phase. The best advice I remember getting was wear them and vacuum. The sound and movement helped sooth them. Such good advice!
Get out of the house!
Just going for a walk and getting fresh air can do wonders for your and your baby. The motion of the stroller (or if you wear your baby, the motion of you walking) will hopefully help your little one stay calm so you can get a good walk in.
