Coping with Colicky Babies

Experience of Jyoti and Samir

Jyoti and her husband Samir had never heard of colic until their baby was born. Recalls Jyoti, “The crying started when Suraj was about three weeks old, and went from 7 in the morning until 11 at night. I was nursing him, so the doctor suggested eliminating foods – starting with wheat and dairy products – but nothing helped. I took him to the pediatrician convinced that something was terribly wrong with him. “Suraj has colic,’” I was told. “You have my sympathy. There’s nothing worse,” he  said. 

Jyoti tried everything to comfort him, but nothing worked for more than a little while. She, however, ended up smoking again, years after she had quit. 

“I was a mess,” Jyoti admits. “I hated Suraj, but I fussed over him all the time. Samir really saved the day – he’d come home from work and take him from 5 to 11; I’d go for a walk and cry. But his strength also made me feel like a dopey little princess, unable to cope.” 

Jyoti kept all of her feelings bottled up until, one day, Shalini a friend whose daughter had been colicky, called and said, “Doesn’t it stink?” The dam burst, “I told her everything,” says Jyoti, “and she told me that when her daughter was little, her husband had had to bathe her because Shalini was afraid she’d drown her just to stop the noise. Shalini even came to my apartment, cleaned it, took the baby and listened to me complain.” 

With her friend’s help, Jyoti found her strength, and realized she could get through it.
