The difference is that in the midst of her fussy moods are more and more moments when she's smiling and happy and I can see glimpses of the happy baby she wants to be. That didn't happen when the colic was at its worst. Don't get me wrong -- she can be smiling and cooing one second, then go back to being fussy and on the edge of losing it the very next minute. But on this long dark and depressing road, it's like seeing a tiny ray of light way up ahead. I just hope that colic truly ENDS and that it really does get better -- because constantly trying to keep her from screaming is almost as stressful as the screaming itself.
The things that made a difference for us:
BioGaia probiotic drops
Chiropractic adjustments (we went four times in about three weeks)
Similac Sensitive for Spit Up (she has reflux and this helped settle it)
Zantac (but this took about three weeks to see a true difference)
And just time, time, time. Some things that she hated just a couple of weeks ago, like being put in her bouncy chair or BabyBjorn, she will tolerate for half an hour or more now. It is a long way from being perfect, but it is not quite as horrible. This board has helped me the most of all, and even though there are not as many members posting as there used to be during the older entries, I would really love to hear from others out there going through the same thing or ones who've made it through and how your babies all turned out.
Sending you all good thoughts and support.
