    About 3 months. We have the childcare brand. I think the Valco may be better but also more money.

    In saying that, it gets used constantly! Honestly best investment ever.

    Default formula related problem?

    We don't swaddle him consistently. It was hot in the last couple of days in Perth. Swaddle him is way too hot. He was wearing singlet with muslin as blanket. Also, he normally tries really hard to unwrap which ends up more awake. I have been rocking him, humming, walking around the house to let him fall asleep before putting him into bed (very gently). If I am not gently enough, I have to settle him again! My back is hurting after each session. He is getting too heavy for me to carry for half to an hr. One reason to get a rocker or glider.

    Swaddle will awake him in this case. Well, 4hrs later, he is finally asleep now. I will see how long......fx.

    I know it is not SIDS recommendation. DH put him in our bed this afternoon with his pillow. He was sitting next to him, of course. Basically, bub whole body was on the pillow and only the butt was flat on bed. Won't slide down like in the cot and more elevated than on tilted mattress with a course of brick. He was able to sleep for 2hrs without reflux interruption. Very unusual. I find elevating the mattress ineffective. He slides down if he wriggling during sleep which makes having a blanket over him dangerous. What's your thought about using the pillow?

    When does colic end? Dr said it peaks at 6w and now 8w. It just doesn't seem to end. The colicness seems to get worse.

    My dd3 went thru this a few weeks ago. I popped some books under her mattress and slept her on her side with a rolled towel for her to lean back against. She is an epic spewer. No pain but loads of vomit. Can't leave her on her back to sleep ever or she just wont sleep so she only sleeps on her side in her bassinet, car capsule as she is inclined or carrier as she is upright.

    Colic runs generally from 3-10wks with a peak at 6wks. Some take longer and others shorter.

    Oh and dont put the nappy on tightly on the stomach but rather just under the belly. I find that it causes my babies discomfort.

    yes not flat. But how much tilt do i need? On losec but it doesnt seem helping. I think the colicness is more of an issue atm. he is catnapping. he cries when he wakes up, after feed etc. Just a miserable baby. I feel like a long way before the colicness is over.
