Baby and Child Colic Relief includes ingredients such as Chamomile and Magnesium Phosphate which are traditionally used in homeopathic medicine to provide temporary relief from the pain, irritability and bloated tummy caused by colic. Baby & Child Colic may be used from birth: the natural blackcurrant flavour and included oral measuring dropper make it easy to give to your baby.
Babies don’t come with an instruction manual and sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong. If your young baby has colic, they may:
cry a lot, especially in the late afternoon or early evening
pull their knees to their chest and go red in the face when they cry
have wind or a bloated tummy.
If you are concerned about your baby’s health, always talk to your healthcare professional.
Gently massage your baby’s tummy to relieve pain and help them relax.
Hold your baby close to you and let them snuggle in or put them in a sling. Then try walking around, swaying or rocking slowly and gently. Try to avoid fast movements or changing positions too many times.
Getting outside for a walk in the fresh air can be good for both of you. Many babies settle with the rhythm of being pushed in a pram.
Ask family members and friends to help look after bub so you can have some time out for yourself. Caring for a colicky baby is hard work and you need extra support at this time.
