If your son has colic, try laying down with him against your chest, him on his tummy. My mother had this issue with my little sister and it seemed to work. It was the only way she would go to sleep at that time.

First of all the best cure for the whole family is that the parents remain calm. (I talk out of experience. My daughter had colic for almost 3 months). Then I didn't know the perfect cure: Give the baby gently 'baby massage', find the spots that works

Neck nestling,Dad's are fantastic at this!This is when the baby snuggles his/her head into the space that is located between the jaw and chest of the parent. Your jawbone drapes gently over the baby's head and your voice box presses against its' head.

Take some unscented oil like sunflower oil or a special baby oil (Weleda Tummy Oil). Then gently massage the oil clockwise around baby’s navel in ever-larger circles with your hand. End the circular motion by moving down over the left thigh.

I find that placing my baby on my chest and hum lullaby soothingly helped a lot. Keeping his bed warm helps him to ease back into bed.

You can try Hylands Colic Tablets they are all natural and will help releive the pain. Also lay the baby on its stomach on your lap and genty move your knees up and down this motion sometimes will sooth the baby. If all else fails take a ride in the car.

My son had colic. I found that Gripe Water helped cure his colic A LOT. Also, holding him closely while laying him on his side, as opposed to his back or stomach, made him happy.
