Remedies For Colic-When Nothing Works April 14th, 2010
Have you just crawled out of bed for the 5th time this night?Are you physically exhausted and mentally drained from having to soothe our baby whenever he or she starts crying? Are you desperate to stop your baby from crying and to find remedies for colic that actually work? You are not alone!
Colic is the bane of every parents life. It is so frustrating to hear your baby crying and not be able to do anything about it.It is even more frustrating to be told that it is normal and there is no cause for it. Every parent is aware that a crying baby is obviously in discomfort. What can you do to ease this discomfort?
Here is a short list of remedies that I tried and my opinion of them:
1. Herbal teas-Baby did not like them, kept spitting it out
2. Gripe water-No effect
3. Baby massage-Baby enjoyed it but did not help ease colic
4. Warm baths-Not practical when you have a crying baby
5. Noise-Tried washing machine…made no difference
From personal experience, I can honestly say that there are no forms of medication out there that actually do anything to treat the cause of colic. This is perhaps because it is widely believed that there is no real cause for colic. I completely disagree with this. If your baby is crying, he or she is in some sort of discomfort. Once you have ruled out that they are not hungry, too hot or cold and not in need of a change you can probably safely assume that he is experiencing some sort of pain.
In some babies you can pin point the cause of crying to either constipation and gas depending on how and when the child cries. However in most babies, the cause can only be described as some vague discomfort. Because of this most forms of remedies for colic do not actually work. You are left with frustrated parents and an even more frustrated baby.
The only colic cure that actually works is Baby Bowen. Why? Baby Bowen acts to re balance your babies nervous system. As your nervous system controls everything in your body, re balancing it will have an immediate effect on treating the cause of your babies discomfort. Think of it as pressing the reboot button on your computer.
You may be thinking, why would my baby need re balancing? Birth is a traumatizing experience for a baby. If your baby is sensitive, he may still be holding on to the trauma of birth. Imagine your computer experiencing an overload and crashing….this is what has happened to your baby. You need to reboot!
The best of all remedies for colic: Baby Bowen.
From my personal experience of Baby Bowen, I was so shocked at how simple and gentle these moves are…and how effective it is! There are only 5 moves in Baby Bowen…yup, only 5 and it is the most effective colic cure.
