Bit early for colic? Has she spoken to her midwife? Might be a problem with what he's being fed?

Still could be a problem. Hardcore crying doesn't usually start this early I didn't think?

my carpet has a flat circle where i used to walk round and round and round and round, after the evening feed. then i started giving infacol before each feed (dd1 was breastfed) (she was only a week old too) and it really helped, beetroot. it was only for a few weeks, til she was older and able to have a good burp properly and better

BOTH my dd's had it bad from this early. drawing the knees up, screaming in pain, blue tinge around the mouth and nose. its awful. really awful

infacol is suitable from birth, just a drop in the mouth before a feed

Those are good tips you found Beetroot.

Still think a WEEK is quite young to be this distressed, although sleeping 6 hours sounds like outrageous luxury to me too.

Is he REALLY screaming for hours I wonder or is it just 20 minutes or so? We had the 6pm-midnight screaming for a bit but that was after 3 weeks.

20 minutes or so of screaming can SEEM awful but it's quite different from the whole-evening job which I what I personally tend to associate with my own colic experiences.

If he sleeps for 6 hours could he be so desperate to eat again that he is taking in too much air with it. The crying also causes the air intake which causes pain, which causes more crying and so on. Perhaps she should wake him to feed a bit more frequently and see if it helps. He may be so exhausted by crying that he needs help to break the cycle. She could try drinking some fennel tea, as it is supposed to help the digestion and have a settling effect.

Yes sounds fairly normal to me - when is the crying happening exactly? Does nothing stop it?
