How To Deal With Colic In Infants Aged 6 Weeks?
my child is 6 weeks old, he was diagnosed with colic his face was red and heed and then cried screaming like he wanted to fart but he felt stomach ache, I touched his stomach a little hardened, after I balurin onion and telon oil, yes I still felt like a stomach ache, finally he I always fart and help always burp, then I hold the stomach again a little soft, does colic in infants recover quickly if the parents always try to cure it the way I did? Because the treads that I read colic usually occur around for 3 hours per day, for 3 days per week and up to 3 weeks
Good morning, thanks for the question
Symptoms of a baby experiencing colic infatil include a baby crying loudly suddenly, usually occurring in the afternoon and evening, where the baby is actually in good health and is full. Then colic is followed by periods of reduced pain so the baby becomes rather calm. As many as 60% of infants do experience functional disorders of the digestive tract including colic and this is normal, and will go away on its own.
In such conditions there is no specific treatment and the child needs to be calmed in several ways by parents. The use of onions or oil in the stomach area is not yet clear its effect to reduce the symptoms of colic infatil. Here are some ways you can do:
1. Give comfort to the baby by rocking it in calm conditions, dim lighting, and a cool atmosphere.
2. Colic can also be caused by air entering the stomach when the baby is breastfeeding using a bottle. Alternatively you can replace a milk bottle that can reduce the frequency of colic and feed the baby in an upright position.
3. Baby clothes blanket.
4. To prevent breastfeeding mothers should not consume coffee, tea, spicy food, or alcohol.
5. Try giving a pacifier.
6. Always make sure to burp the baby after feeding.
7. Take a warm bath or massage gently sometimes can reduce colic complaints.
8. Sometimes certain sounds can reduce a baby's crying, like the sound of a washing machine or vacuum cleaner.
That's all, hope you can help
