Any parent who has spent long nights and days comforting a colicky baby can relate to the exhausting experience. Even celeb parents aren’t immune from the clutches of colic, including Hilary Duff’s daughter it seems.

Duff and her boyfriend Matthew Koma welcomed their daughter Banks Violet on Oct. 25, 2018 and it seems the newborn phase hasn’t been easy for the couple. Duff took to Instagram looking for support and tips on dealing with colic in her infant daughter.

Duff posted a pic of herself holding two-month-old Banks with the caption, “Calling all parents of colic babies…..this ends right?” In a plea that all parents can relate to Duff continues:

“Can you ever set them down with out them screaming OR waking up? We have read everything the internet has to offer… nothing besides nursing basically every hour or less helps! We have done all the obvious things ..please leave magic tricks in comments. Oh and happy new year lol.”

The post has already received thousands of comments from followers offering support and advice. Yes, colic does eventually end, but when you’re in the thick of it can feel like forever. As Duff’s ‘Gram reveals, sometimes just knowing that there’s someone else out there going through the same thing can be the best remedy in the moment, too.
