This book (and dvd) saved us when our baby girl was in her first couple of weeks after being born. We don't need to use all of the steps that he outlines but we do use about 3 of them. Every baby is different, and will need a different combination of things to help calm them down. Its a learning process. If you can just be patient, and hang in there, it gets better. And the good thing is that colicky or fussy babies are only like that usually for the first 3 months (and most of the time less).
