What can you do when colic is stressing you out?

ANSWER

A colicky baby who cries constantly can be a challenge. It�s OK and normal to fell angry or resentful toward your baby. When you feel like you can�t take it anymore, remember that it�s fine to leave your baby in his crib or playpen for a short time while you walk out of the room to collect yourself.
