Hi, I'm Holly. I had two colicky babies of my own, and have helped thousands of parents with their fussy babies over the past 10+ years.
You probably didn't go into parenting thinking you'd have a colicky baby. You probably knew that having a newborn would be tough at times, but nothing could have prepared you for the full-on scream fests...the doubts...the exhaustion...or the feelings of being an incompetent parent.
Chances are, you've already seen your doctor, and he or she has probably told you it's "just" colic, and that your little one will outgrow it in the next few months.
But you can't imagine dealing with the colic for another day, never mind a few months! Your world has been turned upside down by the crying and screaming. You need practical, proven strategies for calming your colicky baby, NOW.
You've probably already gotten tons of info about colic - from various websites, from your doctor, and from well-intentioned friends and family.
The problem is, you've probably also found you're getting different - and even sometimes conflicting information - from different sources.
You may have been told that colic is caused by gas, or tummy troubles, or by your own anxiety.
You've also probably been told that _____________ (gripe water, chiropractic, gas drops, etc.) is the magic cure for colic...so you've already spent a bunch of money on products that didn't even work.
Since 2007, I've been working with families of colicky and fussy babies. I've seen what works as far as soothing and sleep, and have stayed up to date on the latest colic research. I can't give you a cure for your baby's colic, but I can give you tips, strategies and advice that will give you the BEST chance of treating and coping with it!
When I had my daughter 14 years ago, nothing could have prepared me for her bouts of inconsolable crying. She would be pretty calm, and then it was like a switch flipped...and all hell broke loose.
She would cry and scream, pull up her little legs, and absolutely refuse to sleep...leaving my husband and I beyond frustrated and exhausted.
Fortunately, by the time she was about three months old, the colic started to subside. Suddenly she was able to sleep in the evenings instead of screaming - what a HUGE relief!
2.5 years later, our son came along. If our daughter had had colic, our son had SUPER-COLIC! His screaming wasn't just in the evenings, it was all day (and all night) long.
I read every book I could get my hands on...every book that promised a solution of some sort. I visited every website, and even took him to three different doctors - all to be told he "just had colic".
We knew the colic would go away eventually, but his constant crying turned our world upside down. I was overhwhelmed with feelings of guilt, sadness and frustration.
Fortunately, I was able to discover some techniques that actually worked to soothe him - a strategy that was our "magic bullet". While we still struggled, I was at least able to calm him down most of the time, usually in less than a minute.
When our son was four months old, we started noticing a change in him. He no longer cried and screamed all day, and he finally fell into a more predictable routine (day and night).
We could finally start to enjoy our little boy, and put those newborn days behind us!
It was then that I knew I never wanted another parent to go through what we had gone through. In 2007, I created The Fussy Baby Site as a source of information and support for parents of fussy, colicky and high need babies.
Over the past 10+ years, I have interviewed leading experts in the field of colic and fussiness, have been interviewed for media outlets like Parents, CBC Radio and Motherly, and am a regular contributor to Huffington Post's parenting section. I am also working on my masters degree, and continue to provide daily support to over 30,000 parents through our Facebook support groups.
It's my passion to help parents of fussy babies. Through my website, books and support groups, I've been able to help millions of parents just like you!
I know how much conflicting information and advice there is out there. I know you're exhausted, sleep-deprived, and at the end of your rope.
That's why I've written this concise, actionable ebook, based on everything I've learned over the past 10+ years...so you can find out EVERYTHING you need to know about colic, all in one place.
This ebook is short enough that you can read it in one or two sittings, yet is jam-packed with all the strategies and insights you need. This means you can get answers, FAST.
It was concise, informative, well written, and easy to read. I would highly recommend all parents, grandparents, caretakers, etc. of colicky children read this.
If I had had your book from the beginning, I wouldn't have spent countless hours googling....or hundreds of dollars on products that did nothing for him.
I loved [this book]. Chapter five was my favorite. The step by step breakdown is something I wish I had had when I first found out my baby was colicky.
This ebook will tell you everything you need to know about what colic is, how you can treat it, and which products are actually worth your $$.
In fact, if this ebook helps you avoid buying ONE ineffective product, you've already EASILY made back the cost of the book!
This is the only book you'll need...from someone who has been there and helps parents of colicky babies EVERY day!
