Understanding Colic

Posted by Sara Abououf on

Welcoming a newborn into your life is an incredible experience, but it can also bring about challenges, particularly when it comes to dealing with newborn colic. At Mummys Organics, we understand the importance of providing comfort and relief to both babies and their parents. In this blog, we will explore the topic of newborn colic, discuss its symptoms, and highlight natural ways to relieve it, incorporating the incredible benefits of our very own Mummy's Organics Colic Tea.

Understanding Newborn Colic:
Newborn colic refers to recurring, excessive crying and fussiness in otherwise healthy babies, typically starting around two to four weeks of age and peaking at around six to eight weeks. The exact cause of colic is unknown, but it is believed to be related to the immaturity of a baby's digestive system or their response to external stimuli.

Recognizing the Symptoms:
1. Consistent crying episodes: Colicky babies may cry intensely for several hours, often in the late afternoon or evening.
2. Intense fussiness: They may show signs of discomfort, such as clenching fists, arching their back, or pulling up their legs.
3. Difficulty soothing: Colicky babies often resist efforts to soothe them, making it challenging for parents to provide relief.

Natural Ways to Relieve Newborn Colic:
1. Gentle Belly Massage: Massaging your baby's tummy in a circular motion can help alleviate discomfort and promote digestion. Use gentle, clockwise strokes and consult a pediatrician or infant massage specialist for guidance.

2. Soothing Sounds and White Noise: Playing soft, calming sounds, such as gentle music or white noise, can create a soothing environment for your baby. Experiment with different sounds to find what works best for them.

3. Babywearing: Carrying your baby in a sling or baby carrier can provide comfort and simulate the sensation of being in the womb. The close contact can help soothe colicky babies and promote bonding.

4. Mummy's Organics Colic Tea: Our specially formulated Mummy's Organics Colic Tea is created with organic, natural ingredients known for their digestive benefits. Chamomile, fennel, and peppermint work together to ease colic symptoms and aid in digestion.
