Little did I really know what having a colicky baby entailed…until I had one.
I had heard that they are “gassy” and “cranky”, but nothing prepared me literally for the back-to-back sleepless nights, screaming and overall loss of sanity.
I’m not gonna lie, I’ve had moments of crying breakdowns where I question if I’m even a “good mom”.
Of course realistically I know that this too shall pass.
We’ve tried probiotic drops, anti-gas drops, and have a call into the pediatrician asking to change her formula. (She’s on the one that’s enriched with iron due to being early)
But I’m curious, what did you do to help your colicky baby?
