Weathering Colic for New Parents

A common problem many times facing parents is Colic. Estimates say that between 15-25% of infants are born with Colic. Although it is not believed to effect a baby's development it is still a struggle for parents to cope with. Babies with colic most often cry for several hours at a time with diaper changes and feedings having no effect.

Some of the symptoms that your little one may have colic are (but not limited to) as follows:

1.) A high pitched cry that does not let up in intensity, sometimes for hours at a time

2.) Pulls their legs towards their chest or holds them straight out

3.) Face becoming flush and warm while legs feel cooler

4.) Held breathes

5.) Painful facial expressions

Unlike many other childhood ailments, there is no one specific reason a baby may have colic. There are several factors however that may exasperate colic.

They include:

1.) Lack of Burping

2.) Food Allergies

3.) Swallowing Air

4.) Overfeeding or Eating too fast

5.) A tense home environment

The good news is that the symptoms usually disappear at about the 4 month mark. In the meantime here are some tips on minimizing those symptoms.

1.) After each ounce or few minutes of formula, burp them.

2.) Do not feed them while they are lying down

3.) Go for a ride in the car or try a gentle rocking while walking.

4.) Play white noise for them. There are many options in white noise now including lullabies playing in the forefront. Constant noise like Vacuum Cleaners and Fans are also very helpful in some cases and can be purchased on CD to avoid drafts or other issues. These can be purchased from the author of this article at www.yourfavouriteshop.com

5.) A warm bath with a few drops of chamomile essential oil to the water to help them to relax further.

6.) Change to a low-allergy formula or switch to a soy based one.

7.) If you are breast feeding, avoid tea and coffee

Above all you should always consult your physician to discuss the different symptoms. You should always be aware that the symptoms listed above may also be indications of ear infections, allergies, etc. so it is important to discuss everything candidly with your pediatrician.
