Dear mothers and fathers,
All of you for sure know those nights without sleep filled with unstoppable baby cry. Many mothers can tell when their baby suffers from flatulence or infantile colic.
What exactly is infantile colic?
Infantile colic means a painful feeling in abdominal cavity. It is a condition of high irritation with sudden beginning and end. Infantile colic along with teething is probably the most common cause of baby’s cry. It is usually also called baby colic or three month colic.
How can you tell your baby has colic?
When having colic, baby isn’t so much crying as screaming, it pulls up legs, clenches hands into tiny fists and tightens abdominal muscles. Baby’s face turns red. While doing that, baby might also reduce gas and stool.
Causes of colic aren’t very clear. In many cases it occurs when too much air is swallowed. That can happen due bad feeding technique or improper bottle position.
The most common culprit is an immature digestive system which causes meteorism – increased flatulence in digestive tract. Gases press on gastrointestinal wall and create abdominal colic pain.
How to help?
One way to help your baby is to practice relief exercise. It can be exercises such as tummy massage (counter clockwise), frequent prone position, rocking in the arms, warming up the tummy or using rectal tubes.
Gas drops are also used to help relieve gas but it is always good to consult any use of medication with your doctor.
