Q&A: Tips for treating colic?

How do I know if baby is colicky?

Re: How do I know if baby is colicky?

The Bump Expert Chances are if baby has been crying at least three hours at a time more than three days a week for over three weeks, it’s colic. The best things happen in threes, right? Although the incessant crying may make you feel helpless, rest assured that colic isn’t an indication of something more serious or something that you’re doing wrong. In fact, colic affects between 10 to 25 percent of infants, and it should taper off by four months of age. While no one knows for sure what causes colic -- allergies, immature digestion, milk supply problems -- there are ways you can help soothe baby. Babies love to suck, so a pacifier will help calm them down. Rock them along to calming white noise created by a fan or vacuum. Try laying them flat on your chest to help the gas escape or placing them in a car seat above a running washing machine for the vibrations. And always contact your doctor if you have questions.

The Miracle Blanket worked wonders for our colicky LO. It's really easy to use, so even my husband was a pro at it! We also really struggled with Acid reflux and found the Nap Nanny to work wonders! You can find them here: www.currantbaby.com

Yes, try the Nap Nanny! It makes sleeping much easier and more comfortable. My daughter sleeps 7-8 hours a night in this seat, when she used to barely sleep 1! Best product for colic out there!

Q&A: Tips for treating colic?

Our little one is colicky and it starts every day at 7:15. The first few days were awful... I would be crying, the baby would be screaming and my poor husband would be trying to fix it all! But we found something that works... Fennel Seed! You boil a cup of water and a teaspoon of fennel seed. Let it cool (the water will be green) and then put it in a bottle and let him have some. Just a few sucks and then some burping and you will have a completely different baby! Its amazing

Q&A: Tips for treating colic?

What help me was actually watching what I was eating. I noticed that I couldn't eat potatoes (french fries, mashed potatoes, etc.) while I was breast feeding.I read other people couldn't have too much dairy which reminds me that I couldn't eat cheesecake either. There is a list of other things but it doesn't mean you have to stop eating everything on the list. Remember they are suggestions & you have to pay attention to the things you eat while breastfeeding or at least that helped me. I'm not a professional but my baby hasn't gotten colic since I figured out that I have to cut off on eating potato, corn, gravy & cheesecake.

Probiotics changed our baby's problem around! Walgreen's BabyGia's probiotics, little pricey ($30), but we only need to buy 3 bottles. Not only did it help his crying but his baby acne (milia) cleared up. I think some colic is cause by baby's underdeveloped digestive system causing discomfort and thus crying. When we took our birth classes they should have played a baby screaming for an hour to give us a real feel for parenthood! Definitely check these out, we gave them to ours at 4 weeks.

Q&A: Tips for treating colic?

My daughter had colic, and I understand how helpless it makes you feel. My husband and I were lucky enough to only have to survive the worst for 3 weeks. We took my daughter to a Chiropractor (Doc Scharenberg, google him) who is in Wichita Kansas... wow what a life saver. We started seeing him when she was 3 weeks old and she was done with treatment by before we had to fly to California when she was 6 weeks old. I know most people can not travel to Wichita Kansas, but if you can, I would strongly encourage you to. If you can't go to his website www.docscharenberg.com, he has a lot of helpful tips for breastfeeding moms, and he also goes over what colic is.

Q&A: Tips for treating colic?

Great NYT article yesterday! http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/21/microbes-linked-to-colic-in-babies/ Dr. Oz recommends Advocare's probiotic. I've been on it for a couple of years now and my husband just started. I break a capsule into his smoothie each morning, and he is loving it. One more thing...when they had to put my 4 month old on antibiotics last year, they recommended adding a probiotic to his bottle once a day. Turns out, Advocare was my pediatrician's probiotic of choice! This is the video from Dr. Oz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFutUBGY2fs and this site should link you to where you can buy them http://www.choosethechallenge.com/robb

Go to www.docscharenberg.com he has a tab on his website that is dedicated to colic. He gives advise on what to do and also the symptoms. He treated my daughter for colic when she was a little over 3 weeks old and she was colic free before 6 weeks old. He has been teaching parents that are out of state how to treat their babies from home via skype. I would honestly look into it, I swear he saved our lives. I don't think I could have emotionally handled months and months of it. Good luck to you and your baby.

Q&A: Tips for treating colic?

I discovered this baby bouncer that works wonders: http://babytechs.blogspot.co.uk/p/best-baby-bouncer.html My husband and I had previously been taking our daughter for car rides in the evenings because it calmed her down. This bouncer has a "car ride" setting that has the same calming effect without the hassle of strapping into car seats during a crying fit :).
