What causes excessive crying in infants? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
my baby is 4 month old...
yes, please proceed
he was crying continuoously last nght... wat will be the reason
and wat to do during that time
it could be intestinal spams or colic
You can give him colicaid or woodward drops at such situation
change his diaper, change his clothes
make him lie down in another position
How is he doing now?
i gave colicaid... still he was crying...
and not allowing to make him lie down...
he s doing good now...
It happens often in infants
how to control such situation
shall i try woodwards next time....
If there are so serious concerns, you can try to calm the baby
and how much should i give
sure, you can try it
Give around 5 drops
can i be given everyday or only wn he cries...
Babies become little fussy at times, but it is not alarming
You can give it everyday in the mornings, no harm in it
Make sure he is feeding well
Sometimes, kids cry in hunger as well
i tried to fee him.. but he refused
everyday mrng 5 drops and also it can be given wn he cries... is my understanding rite
Then it is likely to be intestinal colic
Let me tell you this first
In all babies up to 6 months, no other substitutes are given except for mother's milk
However, you can still use Woodwards as and when necessary
If he is not having the colic, there is no need to give it
ok doc... so i can give it wn he cries..
yes, you can
am planning to join my work by XXXXXXX .. so wat kind of supplements should i give...
how old would your son be by that time?
will be 4 and half months
You should still continue breastmilk only up to 6 months
but i have to go ofr work
You can give him expressed milk then
hw to store it
store it in the refrigerator below the freezer
then hw to bring it to normal temp while feeding
it must be thawed before feeding
you can defrost it
or leave it at room temperature for a while
