What to do when your baby has colic?

One of the questions most parents ask with a baby who is suffering from colic is the question of: what do we do?
Undoubtedly, it is a moment that generates a lot of stress both at the individual and the couple level. So, often, we don't know very well how to act. It is also true that a baby with colic is usually very difficult to comfort.
You will know that your baby suffers from infant colic because he will cry a lot. Crying usually appears suddenly and seems more like a cry than a cry. The baby becomes very red and usually moves his arms and legs a lot, nervously.
The first thing you will have to do if your baby cries in this way is to go to your pediatrician to confirm that they are really colic and rule out that it is nothing else.
But if the day comes, and it is confirmed that it is colic, here we have a series of recommendations that you can carry out to help reduce, prevent and mitigate your baby's colic.

- To begin, it is important to understand what colic is and why it develops. During the three years that we have carried out research with the Catalan Association of Pediatric Nursing, we have proven that it is a mixture of gut discomfort and emotional discomfort. The gut is an area that in the first weeks usually causes discomfort due to gases or other circumstances. But if this reality mixes it with the emotional exhaustion of the baby, who has been receiving stimuli during the day, it is when he tends to break into desperate crying.

- The most important thing of all is that you have very clear what you are going to do at the moment the baby breaks into tears. What strategy are you going to follow to help calm him? With the Kusi Wawa Method, you will have tools to help your baby relax. What is the Kusi Wawa method? It consists of performing a series of steps that help to relax your baby so that, in the end, he accepts the suction and can relax completely. The first step is to apply local heat to the gut to eliminate possible pain in a 100% natural way. Thanks to the Wawa Band, you can do it quickly and safely. Next, we will proceed to coo the baby to give him security, we will take him in his arms to give him the contact he needs, we will balance him, we will sing him a song ... and when we see that he is more receptive we can already offer him the suction. If you want to know more about the Kusi Wawa Method, go to the Colic Relief section of the web. There you will find a tutorial where he explains it in a simple way.

- Massages Massages are a wonderful way to try to prevent colic. The massages will be performed at the time the baby is calm. We will never do them when he cries, since at the time of crying we should only worry to relieve his pain and help calm him. In Kusi Wawa we have been working with the Spanish Association of Child Massage for two years and we have created massage routines with them. We have some sweet almond massage oils that are wonderful for your baby's skin. If you are interested, we attach a link to the oils page. In it you will find a tutorial on how to massage your baby in the belly.

- Porting. The porting is very important during the day, because it favors the relaxation of the baby. If the baby sleeps better during the day, he gets more relaxed at night and, therefore, the chances of breaking down in desperate crying are reduced. Keep in mind that colic is a mixture of physical discomfort and emotional discomfort (exhaustion of all the stimuli you have received during the day). Therefore, if emotionally you are more rested, it favors a reduction in the intensity of colic. During the first months, it is important to know very well how to carry the baby. It is important that the scarf you use is ergonomic. We like carrying shirts because of their ease of use.

- Physiotherapy and / or osteopathy. Sometimes a treatment with a physiotherapist specializing in blond method or a child osteopath can greatly improve your comfort.
