    i didn't like the way the Colic Calm turned my baby's stool black...and i heard that it may constipate, and she tends to not go for days and then have a huge BM at once, so i didn't want anything else constipating her. so considering all the black staining all over everything and risk of constipating, for me it wasn't worth it since the relief of colic symptoms wasn't that rapid or especially effective, at least for us. right now i'm just using a no-name brand from the drugstore and it helps settle her somewhat. i'm not able to get my hands on the baby's bliss from where i live so i'd have to order it online.

    I tried Colic Calm and found that it didn't really help my daughter. I also tried gas drops that my doctor recommended, but these were ineffective as well. I switched her to organic formula and she is soooo much better. She stopped crying and poops much more regularly. Hope this helps.

    I used Gripe Water for my son, and WISH I had tried it with my daughter because she had a terrible time burping. I think I used Baby's Bliss and back then it was the only one I could find locally.

    With my son, I was breastfeeding and found he couldn't tolerate oranges. Once I cut those out, I found his symptoms improved. I have since heard that eliminating dairy from the mother's diet also helps. I really wish I knew this before... My son nearly broken me. Long hours of screaming, NEVER slept in his bed (and we tried), he would sleep in his car seat if he was swaddled and power rocked. Gripe water helped, but I wish I had tried some of what I know now.

    I have used an herbal remedy called Babies magic tea for my colicky baby and got him settled instantly.
