A fussy baby means no sleep – for Baby or Mom & Dad.
So what’s keeping you up at night?
Colic is a common up-all-night problem, which can leave your little one tired and irritable (you might feel the same!). So how do you encourage some much-needed sleep for the both of you?
Clean diaper. Full belly. What else could be the problem? In newborns, extended periods of crying could be colic, especially if your baby appears inconsolable.
Watch for the signs. If your little one has frequent bouts of intense crying, passes gas during these crying jags, or pulls his legs up when crying; it could be colic.
When? Symptoms may occur within the first month of life but generally peak around 6 weeks and end when baby is 3 to 4 months.
To ease your baby’s symptoms, try these tips:
- Burp your baby frequently, especially after feeds.
- Massage your baby’s belly gently.
- Give them a warm bath or place a warm compress on their stomach.
- Rock your baby and offer a pacifier.
- Bring baby out for a drive. Just be sure not to hit the road if you’re too tired.
