My doctor gave us this home remedy. However, keep in mind that it's rare for colic to last past 12 weeks. That come sometimes help bring some comfort. Just love and hold and do what you can right now. Anyway, here's the "home remedy" our doctor gave us:

Mix together: 2 ounces warm water
1 teaspoon sugar
2-3 drops peppermint extract (from the baking aisle)

Give one ounce in the morning and one ounce in the evening
