    Babies with colic often cry more than three hours a day, three days a week for three weeks or longer.
    -Available over-the-counter, gas-relief medications such as simethicone (St. Joseph Baby Infants' Gas Relief, Infants' Mylicon Gas Relief, others) probably won't do much to ease your baby's symptoms. These medications are generally considered safe, except for babies who have to take thyroid replacement medications.
    -Offer a pacifier. For many babies, sucking is soothing. Even if you're breast-feeding, it's OK to offer a pacifier to calm your baby.
    -Lay your baby tummy down on your knees and then sway your knees slowly.
    -Give your baby a warm bath. Softly rub your baby's belly.
