Win – The Colief Pack ‘n Go Giveaway & Deal with Colic #ReducedCrying

Whether you’re a veteran mom or a first time mom, it’s no secret that those first few months with baby can be rough. Your hormones are out of whack, sleeping for more than a few hours at a time is a memory of the past, and this wonderful-in-every-other-way new baby seems to be crying and fussing much of the time. Your pediatrician says the crying – otherwise known as colic –will pass in about four months and that baby is healthy. But what is a mom to do in the meantime so that colic crying doesn’t overshadow this wonderful period?

While the actual cause of colic is not known, it is believed that some babies have difficulty digesting the lactose in breast milk or infant formula, and for these babies, Colief Infant Drops is ideal to reduce the crying. Colief contains the enzyme lactase, which eases digestion, thereby reducing the lengthy bouts of fussiness and crying that are associated with colic. It’s clinically-studied to help ease digestion.

Here are some more great tips from on how to deal with colic:

Try probiotics

Studies have shown that infants with colic have different intestinal microflora than infants who don’t have colic. Probiotics (Lactobacillus reuteri in particular) have helped reduce colic symptoms in some of these babies.

Use a (warm) hot water bottle

Some babies enjoy the feeling of warm water against their belly. Fill a hot water bottle with lukewarm water and wrap it in a towel. Place it on your belly and let your baby lie on top of you. Be careful not to make the water too hot, though – what feels warm to your tummy may be too hot for your new baby’s skin.

Try a gentle massage

Your baby might enjoy a gentle massage, or she may feel overstimulated by one. Be sensitive to how she responds. (By the way, chiropractic care has not been proven helpful with colic.)

Get behind the wheel

Many parents find that a ride in the car – with its movement, noise, and vibration – is the best remedy for colic. Buckle your baby into her car seat and go for a drive to get a change of scenery for you and (possibly) relief for your baby. (However, it’s not safe to turn on the car and sit in the garage.)

Offer a pacifier

Anything that helps your baby calm down is a lifesaver right now. For some babies, sucking is the ultimate soother. Consider offering her a pacifier, even if you ordinarily wouldn’t. Or encourage your baby to suck on her finger by gently putting it in her mouth.
