Infant Colic: Cranky Baby, Weary Parents

Infant Colic Baby Picture

Everyone knows that babies can be fussy. Most have a fussy period each day when they cry for a bit, but it never lasts long and a diaper change, some cuddling and breastfeeding or a bottle will usually calm them down.

But what if your baby cries for hours each day? What if, no matter what you do, you can’t calm your infant? What if you spend much of your time crying, right along with your baby, because you’re exhausted, anxious and frustrated? What if you’re really not sure how much more of this you can take?

Infant Colic: Medical Mystery, Parents’ Nightmare

Very few conditions in early infancy are as frustrating and misunderstood as infant colic. Even medical professionals differ in their definitions of colic. And for some parents, crying that lasts more than five minutes or their “first-time parent” inability to console their babies makes them eager to embrace a colic diagnosis.

But infant colic is much more than a few episodes of crying for no apparent reason, and it leaves parents and caregivers distressed, discouraged and depressed. What should be a period of great joy, a much-awaited newborn to love and care for, suddenly becomes a parent’s worst nightmare.

It’s safe to say, infant colic isn’t something you’d wish on anyone, and if you’ve lived through it, you can sympathize with new parents who are dealing with it for the first time. Some parents even have the unfortunate opportunity to deal with it more than once.

Infant Colic Symptoms

Infant colic symptoms include any one or more of the following:

  • Uncontrollable crying for a period that lasts more than 3-4 hours
  • Long periods of crying usually begin when the infant is two-three weeks old and last until three months of age or even longer
  • An inability for anyone to console the infant, despite all efforts to soothe him or her
  • Infant posture that may include clenching of the fists, a distended stomach, gas, drawn-up legs

Most medical professionals will confirm an infant colic diagnosis when these symptoms are present and they have ruled out the possibility that any other medical condition exists.

Infant Colic Relief …Are Some Solutions Better than Others?

Health professional examining an infant

There are numerous approaches to deal with infant colic; some are more aggressive and riskier than others.

Health care professionals may simply tell parents to learn to live with it. Some will prescribe over-the-counter colic remedies or herbal solutions. Some will even go the prescription medication route, despite potential side effects, especially if parents insist on a “quick fix.”

However, the sponsors of ChooseNatural.com offer a safe and natural solution to deal with infant colic. Today’s chiropractic care is gentle and effective, even for babies, and it has helped spare many babies (and their parents) from having to endure infant colic any longer than they have to.

Chiropractic Care for My Baby?

Many of the sponsors of ChooseNatural.com have experience with infant colic along with high success rates in helping to eliminate the cause of your baby’s colic, rather than just treating its symptoms.

After providing your infant with a thorough examination and obtaining a health history from you, the sponsoring chiropractor will usually be able to pinpoint the cause of your baby’s colic. Often colic is the result of birth trauma that occurs during delivery. During the birth process, a baby’s neck and spine may be pulled and twisted, especially if forceps were used to help in the delivery. This may cause spinal misalignment which can compromise your baby’s nervous system; illness and other abnormalities are likely to result.

Chiropractors are specially trained to help infants and children with all types of health challenges, including infant colic. Contact one of our sponsors to learn more about how their gentle approach can ease your baby’s colic and deliver peace of mind to you as well.

If you are still unsure about the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic for your infant with colic, please listen to what other parents, who have lived with baby colic just like you, have to say…

Infant Colic Relief, the All Natural, Safe and Gentle Approach

We understand your concern, your frustration and your confusion. We just want to help your infant to feel better. So…commit to some action and call one of our sponsoring chiropractors. Talk about your concerns, your skepticism and your fears and don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions. They are eager to answer them! Then just listen so you can make an informed decision about the most natural treatment for your infant’s colic.

While we certainly can’t promise specific results, we do know that studies confirm the effectiveness of chiropractic care in helping infants with colic. Don’t resign yourself and your baby to just having to “wait it out.” Consider an approach that’s healthy, natural and non-invasive… and then watch your baby (and you) smile again.

Are Chiropractors Real Doctors?
Those of us who were raised in the traditional medical health care model often scoff and sneer at the idea of going to a chiropractor at all, let alone taking our baby to one.Would it surprise you to learn that chiropractors go to four years of post-college graduate school, just like medical doctors? Or that they go through stringent licensing exams in every state? Or how about that they are regulated by state boards and that they have to complete a certain number of state-mandated continuing education credits each year?Surprised? You probably are because most people who have never been to one have no idea what a chiropractor does or how they can help to get and stay healthy, with a finely tuned immune system that does what it is intended to do.

Yes, our sponsors are real doctors, but there is one big difference…they don’t prescribe medications with potentially dangerous side effects and they don’t perform any type of surgery. They believe in the body’s own natural healing ability and seek to remove any nervous system interference that can limit the body’s own self-healing mechanism.
