She's been awarded THE QUEEN OF....

COLIC!!

I've tried EVERYTHING! Swaddling, swaying, walking, swinging, bouncy seating, hugging, kissing, singing, bathing, showering, lotioning, GRIPE WATERING, and everything under the dad blamed sun!

But it NEVER FAILS, each evening from around 5pm until 10 or 11pm my little Bakers just cries and cries. I feel so sorry for her.

I have found ONE THING about 3 nights ago that works....STROLLERING!

THANK THE LORD we have a LOOOOONG driveway.  Last night I took her on a 2 mile walk-she did GREAT! BUT the kids wanted to stay out and play and You can.not.stop.the.stroller without WAILING BEING IMMEDIETE!

That's when the kids began fighting over who can push her.

So up and down the driveway we went for over an hour and she slept and slept.
THERFORE BEING DECLARED
THE QUEEN OF COLIC!

Hang in there sweet love! This to shall pass. And now that you found something to ease the colic. Pray over her continuously during that time. May the Lord Continue to Keep all of you during this season as we get to pray with and over you also!

Love Ya SISTA!

Have you tried adding pro-biotic into her formula? I have heard it works wonders :)

Kid-e-col... saved me with all three of my colicy kids. You can find it at health food stores or online. Its also great for teething so if you have some after her colic lets up, you'll have it for the cutting of the teeth!

Genna was the same way--we found that she had reflux and Prevacid helped A LOT, but she didn't fully outgrow her fussiness until she was about 4 months old. At least you've found SOMETHING that works :).

Your little queen is growing so quickly! Sorry about the colic, how I remember those days! I'll be praying for you! I could use some good 2 mile walks right now though!
What a precious girl you have!
Blessings,

Little Makenna (http://snowflakebabygirl.blogspot.com) has a little colic/reflux going on, too - it seems its starting to tail off (PRAISE GOD!) but she got the nickname fuss fuss and fussers for awhile there. Try the vaccuum or blast static on the radio as loud as you can. Our last resort would be to throw her in her car seat and jiggle it around against my leg - I have pulled over to the side of the road more times tha I can count when she'd start screaming in the car - the "jiggle" usually puts her to sleep - well, temporarily anyway. Makenna loves the stroller too - the neighbors would always joke that we never went home b/c the stroller was the only way to get her quiet - what do people with winter babies do? We have a big old jogging stroller that we call her "chariot" and we joke she fusses just to get her evening chariot ride. Ha! Blakers is a cutie - enjoy every minute!!
