Colic Calm Provides Newborn Survival Tips

March 07, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
LONG BEACH, California March 7, 2013 Colic Calm, provider of holistic colic remedy products for infants, recently released several tips to help new parents survive what it calls "the fourth trimester." Those first four months, Colic Calm points out, can be tough for new parents, who must adjust to life with an infant in the house.

Complicating those early months is an infant's developing digestive system. Colic Calm knows that sleepless nights are common in those early months, with infant crying and screaming often keeping parents awake. Painful gas is common in infants, as their immature systems deal adjust to feedings.

These late night screaming sessions can cut into the quality time new parents spend with their newborns. Colic, a condition where gas buildup causes abdominal pain in an infant, appears in the early months of an infant's life, rarely lasting past the sixth month. As the baby experiences symptoms, he or she will often cry inconsolably, flail arms and legs violently, and, in some cases, spit up.

Colic Calm Gripe Water has become popular in recent years with parents seeking a natural way to provide relief for colic symptoms. Parents are especially interested in finding remedies that contain no artificial chemicals or sweeteners to avoid harmful side effects. Colic Calm uses all-natural ingredients to treat the root cause of symptoms, rather than simply treating the symptoms themselves.

"The first months with a newborn should be bliss, not wished away," said Jacqueline Lawrence, President of TJL Enterprises, Inc. and creator of Colic Calm. "We hear time and time again from parents that they exhausted other options, and Colic Calm was the only thing that worked to relieve their baby's colic, gas and even reflux."

Colic Calm has come up with the following tips to help ease colic during those early months of an infant's life.

  • Consider nursing. While breastfeeding is not an option for every parent, studies have shown that breastfed babies are less likely to develop colic. The many other benefits of nursing vs. bottle feeding make breastfeeding an easy choice for those moms who are able.
  • Burping. For decades, moms have known the benefits of burping babies to remove excess gas after feeding. This can help cut down on colic symptoms, although not all babies will burp after every feeding.
  • Stomach massage. Stomach massage techniques have been effective in some cases. The massage should be conducted more than a half hour after nursing or an hour after bottle feeding and should be done in a calm, relaxing environment.
  • Use natural remedies like Colic Calm Gripe Water. Colic calm contains a combination of ingredients like fennel, peppermint, and ginger to aid digestion and lemon balm and chamomile to help soothe the baby and provide relief from the air pockets that cause gas.

  • Colic Calm Gripe Water provides immediate relief upon dosing, so parents will only need to use it when symptoms appear. For more information on Colic Calm Gripe Water or to place an order, visit the website at www.coliccalm.com.
