Tips for Easing Colic

More Than Just a Clothes Dryer
"My daughter didn't like any of the soothing techniques I tried. Then I found (out of pure luck) that putting her in her infant seat and placing it on the electric dryer seemed to soothe her. The motion, noise and heat seemed to do the trick."

A Vote for the Baby Bjorn Sling
"The only thing that has given me any relief is putting my son in his Baby Bjorn sling. I tried another type of sling, but didn't feel very comfortable with it. Whenever my baby cries for any length of time my husband or I put him in the Baby Bjorn and walk around. It takes around 10-15 minutes for him to stop crying -- he loves it! I think he feels good being close to me and I am able to play with my older son or get things down around the house. I think the Baby Bjorn is relatively pricey, but I would have paid five times as much for the relief it has brought to both my son and me. I don't know what I would do without it."
