Babies with colic: Cry for as much as three hours a day, as many as three days a week, often in the early evening or early morning Are hard to calm May pull up their legs and pass gas and appear to be in pain. With that in mind, here are some ways to soothe a baby with colic: Hold and cuddle your baby. Walk with your baby.

Swaddle your baby in a soft blanket. Each baby is different, but in general Colic starts when a baby is 2 to 4 weeks of age and usually peaks around 6 weeks. Colic usually starts to get ­better when babies are ­cooing and smiling sociably, around 8 weeks. Colic usually resolves by 3. Swaddle your baby in a large, thin blanket (ask your nurse or child’s doctor to show you how to do it correctly) to help her feel secure.

Hold your baby in your arms and place her body on her left side to help digestion or stomach for support. Gently rub her back. If your baby goes to sleep, remember to always lay her down in her crib on her back. Find articles and videos on the differences between crying and colic, and tips for calming your crying baby.

Understanding Why Babies Cry Crying is your baby’s main way of communicating. Giving your baby a warm (not hot) bath or putting a warm towel on their stomach. Massaging your baby (ask your doctor for guidelines).

Providing white noise, such as a fan, vacuum cleaner, washing machine, hair dryer, or dishwasher. Giving your baby a pacifier. Going for a walk with your baby in their stroller. Offer a pacifier because sucking can sometimes calm a fussy child.

Be mindful not to jiggle the baby in an attempt to soothe — which is a method some suggest — because this does not help calm the nervous system. Swaddling can help an infant. Colic usually starts when a baby is about 2 weeks old and ends by 4 months.

Talk to your baby’s doctor about the crying. He may want to check for a medical reason. Try white noise, rocking, swaddling, massage, and holding your baby upright during feedings. If your child is suffering with the symptom called Colic, Calming Colic will help you identify and resolve the underlying causes in your child.
