Two years ago we welcomed Luca. I will always remember…
Yes! We’ve also got through baby colic but we were lucky enough because Luca was strong and he didn’t have too many crying episodes.
The baby has cramps if:
According to specialists colic are defined as follows: a healthy and well fed baby that cries more than 3 hours / day, more than 3 days / week and more that 3 weeks.
To improve stomach aches and eliminate baby gas, I was very careful with my diet. I didn’t eat broccoli, cabbage, beans or anything that could make his stomach bloat.
I didn’t drink orange juice and I didn’t eat apples or plums in his first month. I also didn’t eat chocolate and drank cafeine free coffee. After one month I started introducing gradually these foods in my diet. If I noticed that something made him feel bad I tried to avoid as much as possible that food.
Now, at almost 3 months I can drink regular coffee with milk and I eat apples or oranges without making him feel bad or nervous.
When Luca was feeling bad because of cramps I found white noises very helpful. There are lots on youtube, for us these worked very good:
For gases we found some moves that can help the baby eliminate them faster. These are the ones that worked for us:
That’s about it with our baby cramps adventures. For us they got better around 2 months, as the crying episodes were fewer to none.
