Colic and Chiropractic Care

When a child cries for an extended period of time but is well fed, rested and comfortable there’s a chance they may suffer from colic. Colic is defined by extended crying for a set period of time. Most doctors follow the rule of thumb of more than three hours a day, three days a week and more than three weeks in a row. Most parents can rejoice knowing that colic isn’t permanent and often goes away within a few weeks to months.

We sincerely love our children. What can we do to comfort a colicky baby?

  • Always check the basics of ensuring they’re well fed, changed, rested and overall comfortable.
  • Ensure they have a healthy digestive system
  • Hold and comfort as necessary
