I am sure that you have tried all of the usual colic remedies by now. There is no single tretment that is effective for some babies with colic. A combination of treatments using gripe water, telament drops after feeds and a probiotic such as reuteri infant drops daily seems to help the most.In some cases the use of a lactose free formula solves the problem.
