Since Roo has been born I have felt like a zombie. For the first time ever, I am experiencing what it is like to be a parent of a child with colic. It’s hard. It’s exhausting. It’s stressful.
There are many, many days when I am right there with him in tears. Colic is such a whirlwind of emotions – helplessness, frustration, anger, guilt, heartbreak. Having a friend tell me about the new Little Remedies® Advanced Colic Drops at Target was a major break through for us. Using these colic drops along with these baby colic tips our days with Roo have begun to run a lot smoother.
If you have a colicky baby, you’re not alone and yes – there is hope.
Affecting anywhere from 5-25% of babies, colic can be an incredibly stressful time for both new parents and baby. Colic is defined when a baby cries for three or more hours a day for more than three days a week for three weeks.Baby colic can show up as early as two weeks old, and tends to peak around 3 to 4 months of age, but can last up to a year.
With Roo now hitting four months, for us I am definitely starting to see a decrease in the frequency. So if you are going through this, know this will pass.
