Oh lord, yes, COLIC!
Ours went through that colic phase. Like clockwork every night at the same time. We ended up with one of us with the kid on our lap and the other one running back and forth to the microwave with a slightly damp tea towel warming it. The only thing that would soothe was to take the warm towel and put it over his tummy and rub in a circular motion.
Since we didn't have a heating pad, and we didn't know how long the colic would last ... back and forth to the microwave with slightly damp towels while the other massaged.
I managed to burn a hole in one of them.

How long is everything I do in regards to the baby is wrong?
Warm up the milk for him... its to hot its to cold..
You did the diaper to tight..
You didn't use enough diaper rash crème...
She is 150% zeroed in on the kid and we are coming up on 1 month and she still hasn't seen the doc for her follow up, or gotten anything else done that she needs to get done because she doesn't want to be away from the baby for 1 second.
I literally have to push her into bed so she can get 4 hours sleep, and god forbid I let her sleep for 5 or 6 hours and feed the kid from her bottled breast milk.
The kid has only gotten on my nerves one time so far... the wife on the other hand...
So any tips, suggestions, or advice are seriously appreciated.
