Why is my baby crying?

by - 4/09/2019

When you are a new parent, your entire world revolves around your baby. If your baby is happy and healthy, so are you and vice versa. Although it's a known fact that babies cry, but how can we differentiate whether we need to worry or not? Here I am enumerating the major reasons for their upset state.

1. Hunger:
Hunger is the commonest cause for a wailing baby. They have very small stomachs, so the milk/baby meal gets digested pretty quickly. They need to be fed in small portions frequently. Also since crying is their only means to communicate, they scream till they are fed.

2. Baby is wet:
This is God's way to let the mother know that the baby needs to be changed. Whether it's a wet diaper or a peed pant, baby starts crying from the dampness. We should always check for that.

3. Baby is sick:
Now this is a very serious reason. If the baby is too hot then you should rush to a paediatrician. There may be unapparent signs too like an ear infection can't be diagnosed by the mother. The baby needs medical help.

4. Infantile colic
Now this is the third commonest reason for a crying baby after hunger and dampness. Babies suffer from indigestion and flatulence from time to time which result in pain in abdomen.  Often we notice that the baby stops weeping as soon as flatus is passed. Now what exactly is infantile colic?
The term 'colic' is used when a baby cries for more than 3 hours a day without any apparent reason. Indigestion and flatulence affects babies to that point of extent that they are miserable.

Now how to treat colic?
  • Always burp after a meal.
  • Whether you are breastfeeding your baby or top feeding, it's mandatory to burp before putting them down so that all the ingested air is expelled and doesn't trouble their tiny stomach.
  • Apply Ayurvedic medicine like Mother Sparsh Tummy Roll on the abdomen. There are oral medicines too but one should refrain from administering them at least in newborns.

So how does this #MotherSparsh Tummy Roll on work?
It an Ayurvedic combination of five oils: Sonth Oil, Hing Oil, Saunf oil, Pudina Oil and Sova oil.
As we all know, all these oils work wonders for indigestion and flatulence.
Hing relieves acid reflux and constipation. Fennel has anti colic properties. We all take fennel seeds (saunf) after meals for the same reason. #HingRollOn
How to apply?
Apply directly on the abdomen around the navel area.
