Baby Cramps! What to do?

Index

Well, new babies are born every day and it never hurts to give tips to moms who suffer from this disease. Know that it is very, very common and is also fleeting . I remember when Joana was born. She had a lot of cramps, a lot! He squirmed and cried too much! She and I stayed up all night, she suffering from pain from cramps and I along with pity trying to ease her pain. As if it were today, I remember the pediatrician saying “every day give thanks to God because it is less than a day of suffering”.

For about 4 months she started with pain at 6, 7 at night and went straight until 4, 5 in the morning. It was a complicated phase and I learned a lot to deal with baby cramps. But why does the baby have so many cramps ? The baby’s digestive system is still immature in the first months and then digestion becomes more difficult and slow. The sugars in breast milk are still easier to digest than the formulas that are made by the factories, these formulas are a little heavier. But breast milk can also cause colic in the baby, it will depend on what the mother ate during the day.

  • Corn
  • Cabbage
  • Refrigerator
  • This
  • Café

Shantala massage to help with colic

These are some of the foods that can give colic to a baby. Avoiding these foods can greatly reduce babies’ cramps. But what about when the baby has colic anyway? Calm friend, there is nothing to do! It is because of the immaturity of the organism itself . When your baby has a colic attack, it is best to stay calm. The colic pains that babies experience are similar to the cramps that adults experience when they have an intestinal infection. Well, people are very strong! To improve we have to help the baby to eliminate the gases that cause these pains so what can we use?

  • Warm purse
  • Place the baby on its stomach with our body
  • Belly massage, with hands pulling down the gas flow
  • Medication prescribed by the pediatrician (be it anti-gas or even in some cases pain relievers)
  • Avoid wind blow on baby
  • The cold also helps to gather gases

Try to put the baby on its stomach in contact with the abdomen of mom or dad, warming up, the gases come out more easily, also on colder days you can use a warm bag just to help a little more in this process of eliminating the gases. Baby colic is an unpleasant experience, but with a lot of love and patience everything gets resolved and ends in a period of 3 to 4 months, in some cases, these baby colics can end well before!
