What to do with colic in a newborn?
Colic in a newborn baby is a problem that almost every parent faces. However, not all the child’s conditions, which parents call colic, are such. So first let’s determine what it is all about – colic.
Criteria for infantile colic:
- Colic can be in children from birth and up to 4 months. In other age periods, colic does not happen! That is, if a child older than 4 months has a tummy ache, this is definitely not colic, and we must look for other reasons.
- Colic is the anxiety and / or crying of a child that begins and ends without any reason. This condition develops suddenly, against a background of complete well-being, more often in the evening, and lasts about 3 hours.
- Colic disturb the child not constantly, but periodically, about 3 times a week. That is, if a child has a tummy every day, maybe even several times a day, then it surely is not colic! It is necessary to search for the reason!
- When the child is not disturbed by colic, he is absolutely healthy!
That is, your baby is always cheerful, eats well, sleeps, develops and gains weight. But three times a week, in the evening the child seems to be substituted. He cries about 3 hours in a row with a shout, practically does not react to anything, he kneels.
Do not give the poor child various painkillers, drugs that reduce gas formation in the abdomen and so on! This does not help with colic! If the colic has happened, it just needs to be experienced and try to optimize the conditions for the development of your newborn.
