My little girl is 7weeks old.Around 4 weeks of age she began to cry constantly,wanting to be held all the time,and would fall asleep only to awake after sleeping for like 30mins at a time.she would jolt awake and cry as if mad and hurt.she eats ravenously and is only breastfed.she spits up frequently,and at times it is quite a lot.she also makes a weird swallowing noise,almost like she has something in her throat that's hard to swallow.she seems to like being up on the shoulder and does not like lying on her back.she prefers her side.I tried colic calm which seemed to help for about four days but now seems to not be working for the last two.she sleeps better at night,but fights going to sleep.especially during the day.I am desperate to help her but not sure what to do!?help!

1.There is nothing wrong with the child. Since she is totally breastfed, she gets the essence(nutrients) of what you eat as the mother. There are certain foods that are strict NO while breastfeeding. Please consult your Paed.
So have a relook at the food that you eat and change it suitably.

2. You can take silicea 6X ( Bio-chemic) and NatMur 6X ( Bio-chemic) 2 tablets, 3 times a day for 1 week and observe the improvements.

3. Avoid very acidic food and drinks especially coffee and tea, coke etc.... If you are already following the strict food regimen, the above remedies would help immensely the child in assimilation process.


Hope it helps.

You have to take them and not the baby.

Hello Garcot,it will be a week tomorrow that I went to the store bought the silicea and nat phos you advised,and startedtaking them.My baby has done very well since then!in the last week she has spit up significantly less,I haven't been hearing the rumbling in her tummy as before,and she no longer cries and cries as before.also the swallowing sound she was making before that I contributed to the acid coming up has decreased a lot as well.my question is now where do I go from here?do I continue to take the medicines?decrease them?what should I do?
