Colic occurs when a healthy baby screams for an extended period of time for no apparent reason. It is particularly prevalent in the first 6 weeks of life. It normally goes away on its own by the age of three to four months. It is possible that one in every four newborn babies has it. Although there is no known cause for colic, there are several breastfeeding-related conditions that may play a role in the symptoms.
At babocush, we have pulled together a guide on what causes colic in babies, along with tips for getting through the first few months.
Baby colic is every parent’s worst nightmare. We’re used to our babies crying, but there’s usually a reason for it. Colic is frequent, prolonged and intense crying or fussiness in a healthy infant with no apparent reason.
Thankfully, there are a couple of things you can do that might lessen the severity and duration of colic episodes and alleviate your own stress.
Silent reflux, also called laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), is a type of reflux in which the contents of the stomach flow back into the larynx (the voice box), back of the throat and nasal passages. The term "silent" comes into play as the reflux is not necessarily causing any visible symptoms.
Reflux is common in babies as young as a few weeks old. If it persists beyond a year or causes negative side effects for your child, treatment may be recommended by your paediatrician.
