DR Hanan, i would like to refer to u and may i get ur opinion on my nephew's problem..
my nephew is only 28 days old..
he is active..
mom breastfed him well and he drink a lot..
sometimes he burp easily but sometimes it takes time for him to burp...
and he poo a lot too..
about 5 times a day...
the problem right now is he will cry damn loud in midnight untill 3/4 in the morning..
i ve saw I LOVE YOU massage and a few more technique to reduce the gas. but, it doesn't help a lot..
we had brought him to the clinic 2 days back..and the doctor said the baby is having COLIC.. a lot of gas in his stomach..
the dr gave a red colour liquid medicine to be taken 2.5 ml, 4 times a day..
as a result, the baby is soo sleepy..
is it fine for him?
and yesterday we try to reduce the dossage to only 1.5ml...but he cried out loud again in the midnight..
he is doing fine in the morning..
is it colic was caused by the antibiotic gaved to mother when the amnion liquid burst 24 hours before delivery?
i really hope that u can help me with this problem..
thank you! =)
looks like ur nephew is about my princess nia age
and dont worry ,
u r not alone
Nia also has the same problem
she has colic as well ,
the abdomen become distended
and she is always awake after midnite until early morning
no new issue here
her mommy and granny are also busy trying to keep her calm and asleep
this issue is very common among infant
nothing new here
but it's very tiring for parent
and very frustrating as well
there are a few solution for this problem
first , u can go to the doctor
and they will prescribe u with GRIPE WATER
it's safe to use for infact to reduce gas
after taking this syrup ,
the baby will fart , a lot
however, should ur child still having this issue despite this medication
u should bring ur child to the pediatrician for further assessment
in the market currently
there are also special feeding bottle that can avoid colic
nevertheless, the effectiveness of these bottle are pretty much questionable
occay , those are my answer as a doctor
should u ask my mom.
she will advise u to "mendemah" ur baby
she put some sand inside a piece of cloth
warm up the sand
and use the sand inside the cloth to slowly massage nia's stomach
after that being done ,
nia does look a bit comfortable and sleepy
she was quite calm during the process
how effective does this method?
