My oldest daughter cried for a year straight. We use to walk around the house patting her on the back until she would finally fall asleep from exhaustion. It can be real stressfull. Sometimes I would put her in the swing and go into the other room for a few minutes to take a break. It stopped when she was 10 or 11 months old. It made me and my wife wait 6 years before having another baby. My youngest daughter was an angel. She only cried when she wanted to eat or have her diaper changed.

Our second daughter had colic. My wife would lie down on the carpet with the baby on her stomach. Sort of stomach to stomach.
It would make her quit crying. Nothing else worked.

Oh, I so feel for you. Our daughter had colic for 9 months. My wife and I would take two hour shifts every night pacing the floor patting her to let her sleep. I was also known as the guy pushing the carriage around the park at 2:00am with the screeming baby. (Just so my wife could get some sleep.)
After going through 3 pediatricians and 4 different formulas, she turned 9 months old and it was like somebody flipped a switch. It was over.
It took us 3 years to have enough guts to try again. Son was perfect from day 1. BUT, I’m glad we had the hard one first.
