colic baby tips
Leo made me a better person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He was a colicky baby & made me earn that mama title 🙃 he always has kept me on my toes BUT he’s taught me patience - a virtue that is not my strong suit. and I left that colic phase with a TOOLBOX of tricks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
colic babies are hard because they cry for literally no reason! and/or they are gassy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ so my top tips for colic babies are::
•gerber soothe probiotic drops. they are kinda pricey but they help SO MUCH
•swaddling is super important for colicky babies. however they usually are crying so much that they can’t keep their arms down. the love to dream swaddle up saved my sanity!! plus it’s so cute! We use it for Blake too even though she doesn’t have colic.
•fridababy poo shooters I call them 😂 they will safely (no pain from your nugget) unclog their poor little butt. they’re super weird but they work SO WELL. you kinda gotta wiggle it and be patient. But it’ll unclog!!
•I can not recommend enough - reading the happiest baby on the block. quick read and you’ll gain SOOOO many tips!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•the swing was Leo’s bff. On rocket ship speed Scott called it 😂 but colic babies LOVE/NEED movement!! ⠀
