A great product for new parents to invest in is a Hot Water Bottle from Warm Tradition. Warmtradition.com carries kid friendly plush hot water bottles that can help soothe a colicky baby.
To help soothe a baby, you can actually put the hot water bottle on your knees and lay the baby on its belly on top of the covered hot water bottle. All of the kids Warm Tradition hot water bottles have a protective covering which makes them perfect for this.
The bottles are easy to use. You can either heat water on a stove or run your tap water until it reaches it's warmest stage. Then you fill the bottle up to 2/3 full, and seal it with the stopper. After that, the water bottle can be placed in its cover or wrapped in a dry towel.
When my girls were little they didn't really scream uncontrollably from pain, but they did hate to sleep. My two year old still doesn't like to go to sleep unless she is snuggled up next to my neck - like a cat. After she falls asleep I can usually lay her down in her own bed. But if she has bad dreams or it's cold out, she always wakes up.
Another use of a kids hot water bottle is to help soothe and comfort light sleepers. The extra heat warms up a bed and can provide them with a sense of security.
