Hard subject for me the first 5 months our daughter was colic. Yes we tried all the tricks. We tried letting her cry after we meet all her needs but she would cry for to long of time so i began to just rock her even if she was still upset. The crying wears on you so if I needed a break I would take one and if she was still crying I would go back to her.
I agree with those who say it depends on baby. At times she would go to sleep better if i just put her in her crib and other times that was not gonna happen.
She has grown out of colic but at night wakes up 3 or 4 times crying but for the most part i can feed her and rock her and she will go to sleep.
I had a question about colic.. do they cry nonstop, all day, no matter what's happening or still certain time periods?
