Desperate parents try just about anything to stop the tears. But what works for one baby may have little effect on another. Jessica Johnson of Beacon, New York, tried soothing her colicky daughter with long walks in the stroller, car rides and gripe water. “It all just came down to me holding, rocking and patting her back for hours,” she says.

What’s a distraught mama to do? Don’t give up, says Bryan Vartabedian M.D., author of Colic Solved and father of a once-colicky kid. In some instances, colic may actually be caused by acid reflux, a milk allergy or another treatable condition, he says.

“I always tell parents to first rule out the really obvious problems that can make a baby cry — hunger or sleepiness,” he says.The Infant Behavior, Cry and Sleep Clinic in Rhode Island tackles colic by pairing its tiny patients with a team of pediatricians and mental

Health professionals. Over multiple visits, families get customized treatment plans to address babies’ sleep, feeding and schedule problems — as well as an outlet for parents’ frustrations. Families treated at the clinic say so far, so good. A recent study found that babies treated there stopped crying at a faster rate and had a more rapid decline in the amount of crying per day than colicky babies who only visited pediatricians for routine checkups.If you’ve got a super fussy baby, chances are he’s not the only one crying.

2 (15)Melt the chocolate by placing it in a small pan and placing that pan into a larger pan of boiling water. Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff, together with the 3 spoonfuls of sugar. Add a spoonful of the melted chocolate to the egg yolk and mix until completely incorporated, then add the rest of the chocolate. Add a few good spoonfuls of egg white to the chocolate sauce and mix again until smooth. Finally fold in the remaining egg whites carefully into the chocolate. This should be prepared before dinner so that it has time to chill in the fridge. We like to keep it in a big pot and then serve this at the table, but you can also just fill up little ramekins for your guests.

See, while I was pregnant, I thought might naturally lose interest in breastfeeding. She was two years old, and she is independent, social, sweet, and a bit sassy. She’s a good eater, but she also likes to breastfeed at night. Those first few months of my pregnancy I felt so ill I couldn’t imagine the extra emotional impact (on both of us) of trying to wean her. I was too exhausted and we were both too comfortable with the idea of breastfeeding. Then I thought she might wean naturally as the baby bump got bigger; but she didn’t mind, so I didn’t mind. And when our baby arrived, I thought I would wait to see how it would go for both of them. Would they both want to feed together? Would this work? Would my body be able to supply them both with the milk they needed? I spoke to some incredible people in the tandem network, including my lactation specialist from my first pregnancy; I worried for a while about all these various questions; and then I finally realised that it would all happen as it was meant to.
