We cured colic with a two part combo (wish I'd had it for my daughter) part 1, acidophilus (the baby kind comes as a powder, put some on a spoon and wet with your milk -BE CAREFUL TO DO ONLY A LITTLE BIT at first.. the label should give a guideline dose, because too much gets rid of whats causing the gas.. but the die off makes more gas -all at once) I got started on this after a thread mentioned a study where colic eased up after three days of pro biotics... Part two, is homeopathic, we use a liquid remedy Lycopodium Clavicum at every feeding and at every fuss because it makes gas just escape quickly, instant burp, or nearly instant! And we top off with rescue remedy, because sometimes just relaxing a little bit lets a burp come right on out!! If you aren't used to homeopathics it is always the same dose (1-2 drops for a baby -or even three, its hard to hit their mouths sometimes!- 7 drops after around 3yrs, 10 drops adult) but while its always those two or three drops you might do it every five minutes during an acute episode. My son has had nights where we dosed 5 times in under half an hour, but you should have heard the burp he finally unleashed!!!!
Anyway, wish I'd had this for my colicy daughter!! She suffered so much, and to think I could have spared her the pain (insert sad face here.) The herbals helped her a little.... but after day one on this my son had a bad evening one in three nights for the first week or two (but no-where near as bad as before) and now at three months we still dose, but only as a preventative!
And I agree, spoon, dropper, finger... whatever, get a little milk in that wee one! God luck, hope things settle for you and your babe.
Oh, if you can't get liquid homeopathics (son made faces/cried at first taiste -is fine with them now) you can put the ball or tablet kind in a clean glass dropper bottle with clean good water and hand succuse it (rap the bottle bottom on a thick book or your palm 20 or so times)
