What is Colic?
It is fairly common for babies to go through periods when they appear abnormally irritable, fussy, or seem to cry for no reason. Some babies are fussier than others and may even be described as “colicky.” Colic can be defined as excessive crying or fussiness, usually in the late afternoon. It starts around 2 weeks and generally resolves or is resolving by 12 weeks. Rarely does it endure past six months of age. Pediatricians often use Wessel’s criteria, referred to as the rule of 3’s, to define colic: inconsolable crying for 3 hours per day, at least 3 times a week for at least 3 weeks, though in practice, colic may be more loosely defined. About 25 percent or 1 out of 4 babies worldwide meet the official “Rule of Three’s” criteria for medical diagnosis of colic.
Does your infant have reflux?
Reflux is a normal condition in most babies. If reflux is accompanied with poor weight gain,extreme discomfort, vomiting, sleep problems, and more, many parents seek treatment for their infants discomfort. Given the formative stage of baby’s development acid blockers and surgery could result in undesirable side effects. Because of this many parents look to Colic Calm as a natural option for treatment.
What are the Symptoms of Colic?
Some associated symptoms of colic may be clenching of the fists, arching of the back, or tensing of the abdomen. Bouts tend to come on suddenly and end suddenly, and the cry may sound more intense to parents. Colicky babies may be extremely difficult to console.
Coping with Colic
The most frustrating aspect of colic can be the inconsolable nature of your baby’s discomfort. While parents often feel helpless, there are steps that may help alleviate you and your babies suffering.
1The “Colic Hold” uses gravity to apply gentle pressure to your baby’s abdomen. This may help expel gases and increase motility in the gut.
2Gentle motions such as rocking, vibrating or slow dancing can soothe an upset baby.
3Introduce probiotics early. Studies have shown that baby-specific oral probiotics, such as Colic Calm Probiotic can reduce crying.
