Re: 4 week old with colic
Our son is almost 7 weeks old - and he has colic. You are not alone. There is a "witching hour" it seems, and our son's is usually from around 4pm-10pm. He will not just cry -- but screaming cries where it goes straight to the center of your brain, and there is nothing we can do. The list of things to "soothe a baby" are useless for a colicky baby -- so you can try people's suggestions, but they probably won't help out that much.

He's breastfed, and my wife cut dairy out awhile ago -- and it didn't work. He's just colicky...and we have to deal until he "grows out of it." And sometimes, that seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. When you have 3 days straight of crying/screaming for about 18 hours - no medicine/soothing techniques will work. Its just luck.

You're not alone...and unfortunately, the only thing I've been able to find is to just work through it.
