Colicky preemie brings Mom to her wit's end!

Today has been a trying day. My baby turned 3 months old yesterday, but is 5 weeks gestationally. He was born at 32 weeks. Parenting a preemie (and first baby) has been a lot more challenging than I anticipated. A little bit after his due date, he started showing signs of colic. The screaming and near constant crying really gets to me. I decided to take the year off from work, which means I am home full-time with this little bundle of "joy". We spend a lot of time walking- every day for about an hour. This helps keep my sanity, get some exercise, and relaxes my baby for a nap.
