How to Reduce Colic in Newborns

by Mama Chocolate on April 29, 2012

Although my girls have been pretty easy babies, I am grateful for this information for future babies. If nothing else, it is helpful to see how truly beneficial it can be to have your infant treated by a chiropractor. 

So many parents struggle through the first few months with a fussy baby and perhaps feel clueless and helpless to relieve their baby’s discomfort. If you’re dealing with a colicky baby, I highly recommend bringing her in to a chiropractor to have her checked out and then perhaps taking the advice of Dr. John Edwards in this video!

Thanks for sharing this video! I’m excited to try it and see if it helps. My little guy has a milk sensitivity so I quit eating any dairy made from cow’s milk a couple of weeks ago and that has helped tremendously but he still seems uncomfortable sometimes and won’t let us hold him in our arms on his back because it makes him uncomfortable. I think I’ll schedule him a chiropractic appointment as well…

I don’t know about the diaper changing technique, but I KNOW that chiropractic can help a colicky baby. Highly recommend you find a chiro in your area! … And, might as well try to diaper changing technique too. :)

I never thought a chiropractor could help with a colicky baby. Very interesting.
