Colic in infants
About two weeks to three and four-month-old babies are born, and ten to two of them often cry non-stop in the evening to early morning, some cry violently, and some cry at irregular times.
No matter how securely, changing a diaper, feeding often fails.
Physician’s examination is also normal. This is called infant colic.
The incidence of abdominal cramps in infants is about the same in mothers who drink milk and milk.
How could this unusual baby cry like this?
Crying often causes abdominal distension and farting, so it is generally believed that it is caused by abdominal pain caused by intestinal bleeding, so it is called infant abdominal colic.
However, it is also possible to swallow a lot of air to cause bloating and farting because of crying. Therefore, the cause of bloating is unclear.
It is unclear whether the abdominal cramps in babies are actually caused by imagination.
Infant abdominal cramps will mainly improve before March-April, so it is assumed that newborn babies cannot adapt to the external environment.
When the fetus is still in the mother’s body, it is subject to maternal hormone changes day and night. Therefore, there is a fixed physiological clock in the mother’s body. The endocrine function is immature after birth.Adults cannot cope with the day-to-night lifestyle, and when the endocrine function is prolonged, this obviously improves naturally.
Some people think that infantile colic is caused by allergy to protein in milk, but only one-tenth of allergy-free milk powder will be improved after eating protein powder.
The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend the use of soy milk in infants with infants with abdominal cramps, because soy protein is still highly susceptible.
Some people think that the lactose in the small intestine breast milk or milk is not completely absorbed, and the unabsorbed milk tang produces gas after fermentation, which causes abdominal distension and cramping, but only a few will be improved by switching to low-lactose milk powder.
Baby colic should try to soothe, such as hugging and gently shaking, pacifiers, belly rubbing cooler (menthol, emerald oil), breastfeeding, etc. If it can’t be improved, it should be treated for illness.
If the test is normal and the baby’s abdominal cramps are severe, you can try using proteolytic hypoallergenic milk or acidified milk, but only a few are effective according to experience.
Acidified milk is added citric acid to milk powder, which is said to promote digestion and absorption.
The most important thing is that parents should spend this transition period with the greatest patience, which usually improves before March-April, but the situation of the remaining 1% of babies will continue to seven, volume months.
