How You Can Help Your Colicky Baby

There’s been loads of research done on Colic over the years and although there is no known cause,  it seems to be related to trapped wind in the digestive system which causes distress, for not only your baby, but for you. Colic means to cry excessively, and that is exactly what they do.

Colic doesn’t last forever.  It can peak at 6 to 9 weeks and can be gone at 3 months.  Easier said than done, but the best way to ease stress for both of you when your baby is suffering is to stay calm and focused.  Baby massage is a really good way to ease the pain of colic and get rid of the wind, but there are other ways too

Try rocking your baby and quietly singing to her.  Your voice is the one she has heard for the last 9 months, your voice is what she wants to hear and it will calm her, easing the pain and helping her to sleep.

Try some really soothing music. Our daughter is 2 in January and she listens to the same music I play the same music in my classes, it really calms her and relaxes her so much that she falls asleep to it almost instantly.

This is what I play...
