Last 2 night Lil' K had colic. Normally when an infant experience colic, they will cry as a signal of telling us that they don't feel good. But not to my boy. Whenever he has colic, he won't sleep. His eyes will be wide open..sampai I pon dah naik risau..just imagine yesterday he only slept for 3 hours during daytime..and malam pukul 3 baru dia tido. He will suck his thumb and ask for more milk. However last night was a bit different, he occasionally cry, tiba2..
Earlier during confinement, whenever he cried, surely my mom will said that he is hungry.
"but he just had milk an hour ago", my answer to my mom..
"he is a baby boy, and he is growing", and that was my mom usual answer :)
People said boys drink a lot compared to baby girl, ok fine. Logic jugak..The thing is, my baby, he cried, when I shoved him my breast he will suck macam dah setahun tak minum :) then after awhile, he will vomit!..vomit VOMIT not muak tau..dah la banyak pulak tu. That's when I knew I overfed him..poor baby :(
So over time, me and my husband learnt his cues whenever he has colic. So what we did is sapu minyak telon banyak-banyak. I prefer minyak telon over minyak Yu Yee cos of its mild smell and it's not too strong. Then I will gently rub his tummy, it will soothe him and sometimes he will let out a good long fart...hehe.
In terms of positioning, he will find comfort when we place him in prone position (cobra position is how my husband has named it)..and there are times when we hold him upright, he'll feel better.
I never try that Gripe Water..rarely I encounter parents that says it's good. Have you guys try it? Do you have any other remedies for abdominal colic?..do share :)
