Babies with colic: Cry for as much as three hours a day, as many as three days a week, often in the early evening or early morning Are hard to calm May pull up their legs and pass gas and appear to be in pain. With that in mind, here are some ways to soothe a baby with colic: Hold and cuddle your baby. Walk with your baby.

Swaddle your baby in a soft blanket. Each baby is different, but in general Colic starts when a baby is 2 to 4 weeks of age and usually peaks around 6 weeks. Colic usually starts to get ­better when babies are ­cooing and smiling sociably, around 8 weeks. Colic usually resolves by 3. Swaddle your baby in a large, thin blanket (ask your nurse or child’s doctor to show you how to do it correctly) to help her feel secure.

Hold your baby in your arms and place her body on her left side to help digestion or stomach for support. Gently rub her back. If your baby goes to sleep, remember to always lay her down in her crib on her back. Find articles and videos on the differences between crying and colic, and tips for calming your crying baby.

Understanding Why Babies Cry Crying is your baby’s main way of communicating. Giving your baby a warm (not hot) bath or putting a warm towel on their stomach. Massaging your baby (ask your doctor for guidelines).

Providing white noise, such as a fan, vacuum cleaner, washing machine, hair dryer, or dishwasher. Giving your baby a pacifier. Going for a walk with your baby in their stroller. Offer a pacifier because sucking can sometimes calm a fussy child.

Be mindful not to jiggle the baby in an attempt to soothe — which is a method some suggest — because this does not help calm the nervous system. Swaddling can help an infant. Colic usually starts when a baby is about 2 weeks old and ends by 4 months.

Talk to your baby’s doctor about the crying. He may want to check for a medical reason. Try white noise, rocking, swaddling, massage, and holding your baby upright during feedings. If your child is suffering with the symptom called Colic, Calming Colic will help you identify and resolve the underlying causes in your child.

  • Thank you for this video. All advises worked for my baby. We are dealing it since 6th week and she will be two months old on tuesday. I wonder how long it will take…

  • I used babies magic tea as advised by Carolina and got the great results. My baby was very fussy and colicky. Now he is a happy guy.

  • Colic Baby Parents-

    Nope, not me, never. Swear. For those of you who can bond or actually love your colic baby, kudos!!!!!!! The sound of a crying baby drives me mentally insane. My heart races, I get so angry I have to step away. So I don’t babysit babiesEVER. They annoy me. Good on you for getting through it intact. ��

  • when my son had colic, his pediatrician recommended Babies Magic Tea, I started by using it twice a day and now I give it to him just once before bedtime, it helps with colic and it also helps my son sleep better

  • When I had my daughter thirty years ago, all she did was not cry, but scream in agony. Of course I went to my GP and every time it was the same “her vital signs are fine, there is nothing wrong with her, you are doing really well, it will pass”. So I asked to see a specialist and the same thing, “her vital signs are fine, there is nothing wrong with her, you are doing really well, it will pass”. Then one day as I sat in the reception waiting to see my doctor yet again, his wife walked in and took one look at me and said, “I’ll make an appointment for you to spend time at a Karitane mother craft centre, they will help you”. So off I went to this place I had never heard of and spent a whole day there. It was a lovely warm homely cottage where you could spend a day, or day and night or a whole week if you wanted, where a trained nurse in mother craft and teaching new mums and dads how to handle and feed their babies and put them to sleep and to help with any advice with common problems such as colic. You see colic is not a medical problem it is a mother craft problem, given that there is unfortunately no mandatory training for parenthood and our mothers didn’t really have the skills to pass on the knowledge to us either, there is actually a profession and training that is missing now and it is call mother craft. I was instructed by the nurse to express the foremilk from each breast before putting my baby on to feed. You see the foremilk not only contains high nutruients but also contains the highest of sugars in the breast milk. These sugars ferment as is passes through the digestive system and creates gases that make the gut and lower gut spasam. This is excruciating and is not detectable by any medical device. Unfortunately many people are seeking advice from the wrong profession and please do not take this as a criticism of the medical profession. An analogy of this would be, you have something wrong with your car, so you automatically take your car to a mechanic and he says, “mechanically everything is in working order and it is a great car.” So you go home and there is still this problem with the car. You are left confused and don’t know what to do as you took it to an expert, he didn’t try and rip you off, but still sent me home with a problem. You see, mechanically it is 100% perfect, but you have an electrical problem and that is not a mechanics job to fix. The car still functions and drives fine with the electrical fault, but what he should have done was referred you to an auto electrician. This is what is missing with mothers who go to doctors with healthy babies with problems like colic. It would be wonderful if GPs had training with regard to mother craft centers, and when they come across a parent who has problems with healthy babies, that they automatically send them to mother craft centres. It has been 30 years since I had my daughter and thanks to the doctor’s wife for walking in that day I was able to enjoy my time with her in the early days instead of surviving it as so many parents refer to it. Here is the link to the Karitane centre in Australia. I’m sure they would have something similar in America. @t Caring for a baby is not natural, it is a learned skill. Nobody talks about this as so many people can’t admit they don’t know, and most people don’t know what they don’t know. Because of this so many millions of people are unknowingly dragging up their babies, sleep deprived, and overfeeding to pacify, causing over weightness as they don’t know how to put them to sleep. And this is not a problem due to a persons socioeconomic predicament. Most of the families I have cared for children are wealthy professionals who have no idea that they don’t know the simple procedures of feeding and settling babies to sleep. To most it is just a relief to find someone else who can. To teach a baby sleep routine you need to get training in it yourself. Some places with this training for parents are called Sleep Schools. Find a centre and trained mothercraft nurse and visit them regularly to mentor you through the different stages of your child’s development, it’s called training. In this way you won’t have to massage because you will be eliminating the cause. There has been a shift in our western culture so that mother craft has been lost and an emphasis on academic achievement being the focus. It is just as well we cannot remember our babyhood. If only babies could speak.

  • I don’t believe colic ends at 3 months! My oldest daughter was like that the whole time we were in hospital till 4 months. She is very needy and I carried her all the time early on. She is 7 now and has some attention and learning difficulties.

  • try an herbal curative drink for toddlers’ constipation and bloating “toddlers’ magic tea” it really works fine to heal tummy issues in kids.

  • Ok ladies, this did help my baby colic amazingly…Put a small teas spoon of fennel seeds in 200ml of pure warm water. let it cool down, Then while you’re breastfeeding use a syringe and feed the mixture as you’re feeding the baby, put the syringe against your nipple and incorporate in the mouth slowly. Give between 6 to 9 ml at each feed even if the baby been feed every hour. Make sure to burp the baby at least 2 time.

  • Something that baffles me: watch her bounce the baby up and down at 20 seconds. Now imagine you have food poisoning. Your intestines ache, you’ve had diarrhea. Your stomach is queasy. Would it comfort you if a giant picked you up and bounced you up and down? No way. So why do it to a colicky baby?

  • My reflux baby who has gone through every possible cure with no luck got tremendous improvement by “babies catnip tea”. at days we were up to adopt every possible thing that could get over the pain. just take a look at the tea if nothing is making any change for the LO. this herbal and organic product for babies is formulated by secretsoftea.com.

PS: you can look at website to have an idea. Tap in Google Fennel seeds for baby colic.

  • CONTINUED…

    You try swallowing liquid lying on your back; it’s even harder for babies. Gravity helps keep stomach acids out of esophagus by feeding upright and keeping upright 30 mins after w/ patient burping till results. Always keep bottle angled upright; sucking air creates gas. Do not feed to capacity like a balloon; spitting up = too fast, too much. Pause bottle feeding, give liquid time to travel, settle. Nectar-thick liquids stay down easier than watery liquid; add bit of cereal.

  • We should banish the catch-all “colic” from doctor’s vocabulary. Infants do NOT scream inconsolably for no reason; #1 source of nonstop misery is GI pain; trapped gas or refluxed-up burning stomach acids into fragile esophagus tissue. Hard coughs/chokes during screams can be struggle to expel acid fluid a lax/loose lower esophageal sphincter fails to seal-off & stop leak from stomach. Anti-acid meds work wonders, combined with the following steps that benefit all babies: CONTINUED…
