It isn't colic. It's fussy evenings. They are very normal. It has nothing to do with the contents of your milk or gas. Some babies just do this. It goes away on its own after a few months.

Catie - fussy evenings are very normal. Charlie is settling into a pattern of fussiness from 7pm-10/11pm every evening. She fusses, acts starving then refuses to nurse, or wants to snack constantly....

Farren - I can't believe no one stopped for you! Even if you weren't pregnant, I'd expect someone to help! UGH, stuff like that makes me so disappointed at humanity in general.
