if you have a colicky baby and know any remedies, tricks and tips to relieve colic, then let's share our tried and confirmed colic relief tips and tricks for new parents! as a mom of a colic baby, i have really good tips and tricks for parents to relieve their babies' colic crying.
-firstly, of course, consult your pediatrician to make sure that the crying is not related to any serious medical condition that may require any treatment. these tips and tricks are personal suggestions.
-at the time of constant crying attack related to colic, i suggest you to walk your baby in a baby carrier to soothe her. just walk around the room with your baby carrying her in a baby carrier. the motion and body contact will comfort her. in your womb, your baby was used to be carried, because of this reason, after she was born, feeling as if she was still in the womb will definitely comfort her.
-settle your baby tummy-down across your knees and gently rub her back. the pressure against her belly will help comfort her.
-if you're nursing, you may try eliminating caffeine, cabbage, milk products.
- mamaroo really helps my daughter to relieve from colic. our favourite motion is the first movement, the “car ride,” . it moves the baby in a sort of figure eight motion: up and over, then back down, around and up. so in my opinion it helps babies to digest more easily. as a result of this, babies get calm on mamaroo. at least from my experience i can say that, it works like a remedy for colic. this mamaroo car ride movement is like a game changer trick for colic.
also you can try "babocush comfort cushion". it is a cushion you can put on mamaroo. all i can say is that it works like as a miracle to help ease colic crying!
- i sometimes blow warm air on my baby's stomach. (do this when her clothes are on. as babies can get cold easily, do not take her clothes off to do this.) that motion, gives babies instant relief of stomach related issues including colic, gas, and acid reflux.
- massage will most probably ease your baby's colic. i massage my baby regularly and it also helps to relieve gas. plus, infant massage provides a great way to bond with your baby. the video above really helped me, so you can make use of it as well.
- another trick for colic relief is that move your baby's legs in a cycling motion to ease constipation. cycling motion has helped my little girl to get quick and fast relief from gas and colic pains. this no-medicine method to relieve gas in fussy, gassy, or colicky infants may help you to get instant relief for colic. of course consult your baby's pediatrician before trying any suggestion, as this suggestion.
the video below really helped me. yet i move my baby's legs more slowly than the lady in the video. you can arrange the pace of course.
so, what are your colic relief tips and tricks?
