Question: Colicaid or colimax or gripe water? Which is good
Answer: Hi dear..
It is difficult to say which one is safer and which one is the better choice because both colicaid and gripe water do not treat colic, but only help to control the problem for some time.
Also, different babies will react differently to both, so you have to keep checking if your baby has a negative reaction to either.
What can you do to naturally ease colic
Unfortunately, there is no treatment for colic, and most babies get out of it by the fifth month. Here are a few things you can do in the meanwhile to reduce the pain and discomfort.
Make sure to burp your baby after each feed and through the day, as this will help to release gas.
Lay down your baby on his or her back, hold the legs in a cycling motion and keep moving accordingly. Do this a few times through the day.
Place your baby’s head in a slightly elevated position while feeding.
Try soothing techniques such as rocking, swaddling, patting the back, massaging the tummy, speaking softly and so on.
Try keeping the feeds a little smaller and keep them more frequent instead. This will avoid your baby from getting too full, which can also cause colic.
Helping your baby through colic can be stressful for you too, so if you feel you are getting impatient, angry, frustrated or too tired, ask your partner or a family member to help.
If you feel any signs of anger or feel like hurting yourself or your baby, please speak to your doctor about it and ask for help.
