What is Colic?



What is colic?

At Brauer, we understand that babies don’t come with an instruction manual. Sometimes it can be hard to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong, especially when you’re a new parent! If your baby is constantly crying for no obvious reason then there is a chance they might have colic. Colic occurs in otherwise healthy babies and is characterised by constant restlessness and excessive crying.

Is colic serious?

Colic severity is different for every baby. Some babies only show mild symptoms of colic, such as restlessness in the evening. Whereas other babies who show more extreme symptoms may experience long periods of crying and irritability.

But why is my baby crying?

Some babies cry more than others, that’s just the way it is. Unfortunately, your baby’s upset can’t be completely explained because there is no confirmed cause of colic. People often suggest medical reasons for colicky behaviour, such as gastrointestinal discomfort, nappy rash or allergies and intolerances. These things may aggravate your baby’s colic, but no single symptom has been proven to directly cause it.

Having a newborn baby can bring lots of excitement. However, parents can also find it a bit tricky when having to navigate some common baby ailments, especially if you’re new to parenthood. Homeopathic products provide natural remedies for your baby’s health and wellbeing. If you're after colic relief for your baby, Brauer Baby & Child Colic is made from ingredients traditionally used in homeopathy.
