When babies are born, their bodies need to get used to a completely different environment from where they lived during the nine months of pregnancy (the placenta). Then, after a few days, there is pain that can not be tolerated by newborn babies who can only manifest it by intense crying, and this can last for a long time. Unfortunately at this stage it is too early to administer any drug to any baby, so you feel helpless. This is why it is necessary to know the good gestures to adopt and to know to apply the good tricks to calm its pains.

What is an intestinal cramp?

Intestinal colic or cramps are pain that occurs in almost all newborns in the first few weeks of life. They are mainly explained by the fact that their digestive system does not function quite normally and gradually becomes accustomed to the new mode of feeding (breast milk). Lactose intolerance, mother's stress response, feeding, and absorption of air through breastfeeding may also be contributing causes. Colic can occur up to the age of 3 months but begin to subside and become less frequent as of the twelfth week. They occur mostly half an hour to an hour and a half after meals.

How to recognize intestinal cramps?

Babies have different crying. Some express hunger, others sleep or still others pain. We can recognize the intestinal cramps in the infant mainly by strident, intense and uninterrupted crying. The baby becomes red, his face twists, he stiffens, arches his back, tightens his wrists and brings back his thighs to his belly. This one is hard and full of air. Generally its crisis is accompanied by gas and flatulence.

How to remedy it naturally?

And if they call on his services, it is because this doctor has found an unstoppable technique to instantly calm the pain of babies. His technique consists of stretching the baby on the stomach, stretching his spine and then exerting small pressures with his fingers on the back of the infant to look for the tense area, then stretching it even more, he quickly presses with the palm Of his hand on this point which suggests a cracking sound. The baby cries naturally after this and then stops all at once, it becomes more relaxed and feels no pain. People seeing this practice were shocked at first but were eventually convinced that it calmed colic pains in infants.
