Going crazy dealing with your colicky baby? Here's a few home remedies to consider

posted in Family & Kids > Parenting
  • 1 in 5 infants suffer from colick, my daughter did and it drove me insane. The term applies to any otherwise healthy baby crying for more then 3 hrs/day for 3wks+
    (I know right)? It's mentally draining but its possible to ease. ASK YOUR PEDIATRICIAN BEFORE USING ANY MEDS INCLUDING HERBAL!!!

  • If your little one has any of the following symptoms I suggest going to your Drs. office asap:
    -clenches fists to where they become red
    -face flushes and/or pales
    -arches back in pain
    -pulls knees up and curls toes
    -eating habits have changed

  • First ask if formula needs to switch to Sensitive from the Original brand and dont over feed. Swaddle your baby in his or her swaddle blanket...the hospital usually gives them to you but you can buy others. This calms your child reminding him of your womb. Try rocking your baby softly with the fan on. In some cases putting your baby in the car and going for a ride helps. "Baby Magic" and "Johnson" has body wash and lotions with chamomile to aid sleep. Also limit air intake by switching bottles.

  • If these remedies dont help then I suggest trying herbal meds but only after you've tried everything else. "Gripe Water" is a very common method. "Little Remedies" anti gas medicine really helped us. But there's many different meds to reduce your babies crying and gassiness. Some work better then others so dont count one out if someone says it didnt help them. All meds vary for each child. Good luck! And remember it'll go away its only a phase so dont stress too much!!
