Sometimes babies just cry. Nobody can pinpoint a medical reason, and they just wail and wail. Much to the parent’s chagrin. It’s called colic, and boy is it not fun.
But sometimes there is a reason for that crying that may not be obvious. That’s why babies need a thorough exam to make sure it’s colic. In this week’s featured article, “Colic Tips: How to Calm a Colicky Baby,” we list a few of these things:
- Hair tourniquets (hairs wrapped around fingers, toes, penis)
- Formula intolerance
- Breast-milk intolerance (due to something in the mother’s diet)
If your doctor has diagnosed your baby with colic, we feel for you, and we hope a couple of the tips in the article will help.
