    Default colic?

    Hi,

    My 5 week old gets VERY cranky around 6-8 pm. Many times, nothing will soothe her except rocking.. Do you think it is colic? Can colic be caused by me eating something, like Dairy?

    What does everyone think?

    The book Happiest Baby on the Block was a livesaver for us and we still use the techniques at 10 weeks of age. I bet many of the other mom's would agree!
