Baby crying & colic is a hot topic on this week’s episode of Sense by Meg Faure. For new parents especially, prolonged periods of crying for no obvious reason is stressful. It can become so bad that it’s often a reason for parents to take their little ones to the pediatrician. Meg and Bailey delve into the subject whereby Meg dispels some of the myths around colic.
She also explains how colic is defined by the “rule of three”: crying for more than three hours per day, for more than three days per week, and for longer than three weeks in an infant who is well-fed and otherwise healthy. Meg also talks about the difference between reflux and colic. And she shares how the sensory system, or overstimulation specifically, impacts on your baby’s ability to settle to sleep.
