We used cranial osteopathy. I was VERY skeptical and boy! did it work wonders! During the session I was actually thinking that I was getting ripped off because it looked like the osteopath was not really doing much.
The problem was solved overnight.
For DC2 who cried a lot, we took him to the osteopath too thinking it was colic. The practitioner said that she didn't think it was colic, maybe more something digestive. She was right.
If you can afford it, do give it a try.

I have contacted one as doing some research it kept popping up. What do they actually do while you are there? Thanks for the tip

Very gentle massaging. Hence I thought she was doing nothing.
