Always also consider what kind of emotions the mother is going through; this may impact the baby. (e.g. grief, fear, anxiety)

Help for parents:

When parents are very stressed and exhausted from a crying and colicky baby, consider taking some Tissue Salts – like the nerve calming Kali Phos in a 9x potency, eating regular and nutritious meals and going out for some fresh air may also help.
