Re: HELP! My newborn has me stressed and stumped!

[QUOTE=annes_cottage]Awe poor Emma and poor Mommy! It does sound like colic, or gas (which colic is bad gas). /QUOTE]

Colic is a baby's inability to cope with "life outside the womb". They just get super stressed and it's just too much for them. It's mistaken for gas because they gulp so much air when crying hysterically for hours. Trust me, I know! With my dd we figured out that putting her in her swing, tightly swaddled, with a pacifier tucked in teh blanket holding it in her mouth, the swing on high, and the music all the way up was the ONLY thing that worked. Remember, the womb is a tight and noisy place. Good luck mama!
