Coping with Colic

I can help you determine the cause of your baby’s inconsolable tears, and then recommend solutions that will help your baby rest easier.  Together we will develop a plan to manage your high needs baby.  When your baby is crying she is trying to tell you something.  We will listen together to identify her needs.
Here are some of the signs to look for:

  • The baby cries inconsolably. Nothing you do seems to soothe your baby
  • The baby begins to cry as soon as you try to transfer to the cradle.
  • The baby begins crying 5-10 minutes after being laid in the crib
  • The baby seems to have more gas than most babies.
  • If you lay the baby down allowing her to “cry it out” the crying escalates.
  • When you are breastfeeding the baby pulls on and off the nipple
  • Sometimes when feeding the baby, he eats voraciously
  • The baby frequently sounds congested
  • The baby seems to have hiccups a lot

Dr. Bryan Vartabedian has written a definitive book Colic Solved: The Essential Guide to Infant Reflux and the Care of Your Crying, Difficult-to- Soothe Baby that will help you understand what is happening to your baby. You and I will use the principles of his book to develop strategies to help your child eat and sleep peacefully. You and your baby don’t have to be miserable any longer!
