I bet that those who has fresher at home might experienced crying marathon of your baby. Either because it was getting used to the environment as newborn or it just suffers from colic. One or the another case makes the same consequence, your baby is crying and crying and shouting like you would killing him and you try first and last to make him comfortable and stop this horror.
So since Edie experienced yesterday one of those moments, luckyly just for a while I decided to write about our system to soothen him and calm him down.
One of my friend usually say………you know if your baby cry breast will help always, this chewing movements are better than enything else, but I was manytimes desparate because there was no way to connect our crying baby and let him calm down while breastfeeding. And in this moment I recognized that breast is not general solution for every pain. So what we found out with mu husband in case our darling has gasses or colic:
he was moving a lot his body and specially bending his back backward
when breastfeeded he was gettinh impatient and his face was turning red – obviously he was not able to drink because he had many gasses so I dissconnect him evem he started to cry, ket him burb and than connect again………he calmd down and could comfortably continue drinking
when hw has colic nothing seems to help, massages, different carying positions, hot towel over his belly, swinging movments or breast. So as the last option we used to use smole plastic tube which goes from his rectal holw quite deeply into his intensis………..this helps nearly allways. He can farth through out and sometimes he used to make poo too. After his intensins are emptyd it is easier to connect him and calm him down when nursing.
many times when Edie is fussy bathing calms him down perfectly………..simply he loves water.
I read really nice article and I would love to share it with you now:20 Ways to Comfort a Crying Baby it can be helpful for you too.
I would say the most important think to have your baby happy is prevention, especially regarding to moms diet, I can easily predict when my bayby will cry. When I have gasses most probably Edie will have them too.
be sure that your baby is burbed, that he is not too warm or too cold, talk calmly to him but in our case sometimes helped to reis your voice to get him away from crying trans.
The most important is personal approach to your baby. Every is different and reacts differently on stimulous. So hope you will find your way through love and patiency even sometimes you might feel that you do things wrong because your baby is crying and crying but hold on, it will stop 🙂 I felt sometimes down too and not able to help him, I thought that I do everything wrong but in some times he calmed down (sometimes is matter of minutes and sometime long hours)……
