Although my children are now grown and on their own, I still remember those colic days with my son; coming home from work finding my husband sitting on the porch chain smoking and pulling his hair out while John E. sat in his swing screaming at eight weeks old. He had colic something awful when he was a few weeks old, and it seemed the only things that would make him happy were laying on my chest and my grandmother’s talented baby skills. I remember feeling helpless and like a terrible mother.
He eventually grew out of it, and life settled into a routine, but getting to that point was a traumatic experience. That’s why when I saw this article from Gerber regarding methods to treat the symptoms of colic, I decided to share it with all of my followers who might be living their own colic nightmare.
