Ishita Dutta shares her experience of dealing with a colic baby

In a video, Ishita Dutta detailed her experience of dealing with a colic baby. She also shared tips to handle them. She can be heard saying, "They say this is the best phase so enjoy it while it lasts. Those tiny hands and feet, those random laughs and funny expressions. I am going to miss this so much, he is growing up too fast. But let me tell you what I am not going to miss. Those sleepless nights, him crying for hours and being not able to comfort him and watching him in pain. This one is for all the moms with colicky babies. I feel you and I want to say that you're not alone. It was so overwhelming and it took me so much time to figure out what was wrong and I still couldn't take away the pain."

She added, "This is what I did to comfort him, I switched to only breast milk. Held him close and walked around for hours till the pain passed, warm baths and tummy massages. Holding him upright for at least 30 mins post feed. Most nights he would sleep on me. And somehow, singing to him and car rides really relaxed him and helped him sleep. And of course, lots of love and patience as this can take time to settle."

Ishita concluded by saying, "5 months later as I look back, it all seems like a distant memory. There are still bad days but he is so much better. The crying has finally stopped and I can see him smile. To all the mommies, hang in there it is going to get better."
