What has been your saving grace for colic?

We are hitting 3 months with colic. We have tried gas drops, gripe water, probiotics and none seem to resolve.

Any other suggestions?

    Early bedtime! One day we swaddled him up turned on the white noise machine and put him to bed around 6:30. I'm assuming he must of fussed a little (I can't even remember) but to my surprise it was much easier to get him to go to sleep early vs later. So now my little guy (also 3 months) has a bedtime between 6pm and 7pm (depending on when his last nap ended). We've pretty much successfully ended those horrible colicky nights by putting him to sleep before the fussiness escalated.

    Also baths. We have started to give him a bath every evening because he loves it so much. He is all smiles once in the bath. Good luck!

    There was just nothing else we could do.
    Time passed, it got better.
