I received a free sample of [Gerber® Good Start® Soothe infant formula or Gerber Soothe® probiotic colic drops] from Gerber. My thoughts and opinions are by my own.
My oldest son had colic when he was 2 months old. It only lasted for 2 months, but it was the longest two months of my life. When I see or hear of a new mother struggling because she has a colicky baby, I feel so deeply for her. It is tough. It was one of the most trying times in my life. I’m not the type of person who can go no with life when I don’t get enough rest. I am the momster type if I don’t get any sleep and let’s just say that patience is not my strongest trait, either. Being in a position of not knowing why your baby is screaming for 9 hours straight is hard. Especially when you are exhausted, it’s 2a.m. and you have tried everything.

Knowing that we have another baby boy coming in less than 12 weeks is super exciting, but also a little nerve-wracking. We aren’t exactly in the most “prepared parents” state of mind right now with us building a house and living with my parents, things are a little crazy. We will be moving the week my baby is due, so it is slightly stressful. On top of that stress I have worried a little bit about his personality. Hamp was a very difficult baby. Sophie was super easy. What on earth am I going to do if this baby has colic again? Lucky for me, Gerber has sent me Gerber® Good Start® Soothe Infant Formula and Gerber® Soothe Probiotic Colic Drops! I feel so much better and more prepared now if this baby does have colic. At least this time around, I will have a remedy for it instead of being totally helpless.
The probiotics in this formula help promote good digestive health which soothes a baby while hurting and crying. I am so glad that I have these products on hand! It definitely gives me a little more comfort.
Have any of your babies had colic?
