Since many people don't know what colic is, it is basically trapped gas in the babies gastrointestinal. Since their gastrointestinal is still maturing they have a hard time either releasing the gas or handling all of the gas. It peaks around 6 to 8 weeks, and by 3 to 6 months it starts to fix itself and get better. So don't worry it will not last forever. And if you can get through this tough time then you can get through anything. And don't feel bad if you have to set your baby down for a minute to regroup yourself. I know my son would calm down after I picked him back up when I would put him down for a minute to gather myself back together. I felt so helpless when he would jut cry and cry and nothing would help. So I would put him down for a minute and gather myself back together and then pick him back up and try again with different ways to try and help soothe him. There is a way you can hold your baby, which is called the colic hold, that can help to soothe your baby. You have them face down on your arm with their head by your elbow and their bottom in your hand (almost like you're carrying a football). The pressure on their little tummies helps soothe the discomfort they have in their gas track.
You got this and can get through this tough time with your baby. Don't let anyone or anything discourage you either. I'm sure you are doing a perfectly find job with your baby.
Hope all of this information helps someone.
