Sister Lilian gives moms advice on how to cope with their crying, colicky babies.
Doctors usually follow a standard diagnosis and treatment regime. Parents will be asked to relate all symptoms, tummy sounds will be listened to and on occasion x-ray examination might be done, especially if baby vomits often. Antispasmodic medication is mostly prescribed and assurances given that if baby’s milestones and weight gain are adequate, the passage of time will surely cure the condition. This will put parents minds at rest that there is nothing serious amiss although medication may have some adverse effects used for longer periods and emotional coping is seldom sufficiently addressed.
Chiropractic for colic has success at times because birth may cause pressure to head and spine with subsequent pain and blockages in body energy that affects the digestive system. Expert chiropractic re-alignment techniques can in such cases be of seemingly miraculous help.
