A Typical Case of Baby Colic.
Which Phase Is Your baby In?
Which Phase Is Your baby In?
Symptoms are not yet severe and include:
- Moaning and groaning,
- Fussy feeding
- Perhaps little crying spells
The weeks go by and symptoms worsen despite best efforts:
- Cramping is worse,
- Crying can last over an hour,
- Every one’s sleep is broken,
- Reflux (vomiting) often starts in the stage.
In the final stage, symptoms of pain and discomfort are overwhelming:
- Cramping continues for hours on end, even when sleeping.
- Crying for five hours a day is common.
- The baby is now in a lot of pain, exhausted and probably not eating well.
- Mom and Dad are frazzled, emotionally spent and feel powerless to ease the suffering their little one is going through.
What Went Wrong?
There are various causes of colic in babies but the most common cause by far is trapped gas and wind in an immature digestive tract. What might start as simply fussiness in a baby can become true infantile colic in a just a few weeks. This is often through poor colic treatment by the parent rushing to medicate symptoms, thereby delaying proper treatment.
What Is Colic
The term colic has come to be a sort of generic word for an unhappy crying or cramping baby.
What surprises some new parents, is that there are different types of colic and each needs its own unique treatment. The best treatment for colic is that which can be done naturally by the parent.
This website is dedicated to educating users about the various types and treatments for babies with colic. On these pages, parents will often be able to diagnose the type of colic they are battling with and find the most appropriate type of treatment for their babies colic.
Our video training center offers all the exercises, techniques and tips you will need.
Here are the 4 different Categories of Colic. Each needs it's own type of treatment:
Babies often swallow gas when they feed, and not burping properly results in cramps and discomfort. This gas then passes through to the intestines causing bloating, straining, moaning, groaning and crying.
Our program teaches 6 highly effective dynamic burping techniques to provide quick relief from stomach colic.
The next and most common cause of colic symptoms is an excessive amount of gas in the baby’s intestinal tract. It starts around 2-6 weeks as general fussiness and progresses through the 3 stages described above. Sadly, many parents rely only on medication and the syndrome persists for many months. On our training page, you'll find excellent techniques that are specifically designed to un-trap and mobilise intestinal gas.
Around 25% of colicky babies fall into this category which is not related to trapped gas or winds, but rather to muscular or skeletal tension and imbalance. Symptoms are often present from birth and there is a higher incidence in caesarean deliveries, traumatic births, etc.. On our training page, you'll find stretch exercises and massage techniques that are specifically designed to relieve muscular colic.
This is the extreme form of colic (stage 3). The hallmark is crying and cramping for many hours a day. They moan, groan, strain, cramp and cry until exhaustion takes them to a brief, disturbed sleep.
This type of colic is thought to be some sort of neurological overload or simply a case of an overtired baby that has been medicated for too long instead of having the cause treated.
It is critical to get help with the correct diagnosis and start treating the underlying cause.
