Coliky baby having severe colic pain

My baby is 2 months old. Sometimes she cries a lot and doesn’t take feed. I consulted Doctor, He asked the baby is having stomach pain. I gave all the medicines that Doctor prescribed but still the baby is crying. Please suggest what to do to improve her colic pain and to improve indigestion. She is on breast feed only. Is there any other reason for baby weeping? She cries for hours. She doesn’t take feed properly. Is poor feeding is the reason for her crying?

  1. Hello and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.Infant colic can be really stressful and depressing for the mother and can lead to cessation of breast feeding in baby.Colic occurs in almost all infants.It peaks at 6-8 weeks and subsides by 3-4 months of age.It is caused by imbalance of brain chemicals and resolves when baby starts making these chemicals in body.Babies swallow air while crying.This further aggravates it.It is possible that baby is sensitive to certain foods in your diet.Wheat,eggs,nuts,caffeine and chocolates are few of the common foods causing problems.You may avoid them for few days.If baby seems well after few days then reintroduce one food at a time and see the response.Treatment with probiotics has been shown to help.Ask your doctor for a specific recommendation of Probiotic for your baby.It is also necessary to rule out underlying medical conditions such as reflux,allergies,hernia or a urinary tract infection.I sincerely hope this information helps you.Keep us posted with more queries.Take care and good day!
