Motherhood is all about sleepless nights, being in trenches with your new born and unconditional love for them. We all adore singer Hilary Duff sharing her journey as a mother of two on social media which is relatable to every new age mother.

This time the 31-year-old singer took to her Instagram handle and revealed that her 2-months-old daughter Banks is suffering from colic.

She addressed her post to parents whose babies are suffering from colic and asked for help out loud.

In the caption she stated, “Calling all parents of colic babies.....this ends right?” she captioned a shot of herself holding her baby.

“Can you ever set them down without them screaming OR waking up? We have read everything the internet has to offer... nothing besides nursing basically every hour or less helps! We have done all the obvious things ..please leave magic tricks in comments. Oh and happy new year lol #thankGforfilters #babyforsale !!! #anytakers??”"

While some followers told her to use gas drops, few others suggested baby chiropractor! Nevertheless Hilary's post saw some really helpful tips and tricks.

Having said that, now what exactly is Colic?

Babies suffering from colic have bouts of intense, loud and inconsolable crying, for three hours or more a day, for no apparent reason and around the same time each day.

Apart from crying, babies tend to clench their feet, curl up their legs and suffer from swollen stomach.

Even though they seem to have belly pain, colic babies eat well and gain weight like other babies.

It's estimated that up to 40% of all infants have colic. It usually starts between the 3rd and 6th week after birth and ends by the time the baby is 3 to 4 months old.

Difficult as colic sounds, it isn't dangerous and does vanish after three months.

However, if your baby still suffers from severe symptoms of colic like vomiting, fever, diarrhea even after three months then medical help is what you really need.

What are the possible causes for Colic?

Hunger

Fear

Intolerance to certain foods

Tips and Tricks for Colic Babies

Diet Control: Breastfeeding mothers should keep caffeine, soy, egg, diary, wheat.

Burp it out: Burp your baby often while feeding by laying them on the stomach.

Distraction is the key: Play music, swing the baby or sing until they fall asleep.
