When babies cry, they swallow air and this adds to a colic state. Your baby may just be a huggy/kissy, tactile one that really does need a lot of holding, more than you 'think' you have time to devote. That is where your critical audience comes in (husband, in-laws, friends etc.) - use them. Let them hold the baby for a spell. It is amazing how many tasks can wait until you have two hands or arms with which to do them.
