Featured Review: The First Years Colic Pad
Colic sometimes begins in the first couple weeks of a baby’s life and may continue until the third or fourth month.
The First Years Colic pad was created to help soothe a fussy newborn (0-3 months). This battery-operated massage pad relieves colic symptoms by using a circular motion paddle along with white noise and vibrations to help calm and soothe your baby. Most parents know that calming a colicky baby is trial and error, but having a product like this goes a long way because it uses 3 popular techniques at once.

I had the chance to try this pad out with my son and was pleasantly surprised by the effect it had on him.
Out of the box the pad was ready to go, all I needed to do was install the batteries.
I like that the whole thing comes apart easily and the fabric can be removed for washing.
This Colic pad was primarily designed for over the shoulder use, but my little man preferred to lay on it on my lap and this also helped me get him to sleep faster.
When using it over my shoulder I found that it was a bit bulky even though the baby seemed to enjoy it either way.
During a recent crying spell I found that the soft circular motion of the 'paddle' stopped him from crying because it was something he wasn't used to.
It then calmed him down with its consistent motion.
Some parents try medication, while other walk the floor for hours. This Colic pad is great option to bring peace back to your day.
