now is 7th month, i dont know iszit somehow affect him(touchwood)! but i told hubby this weekend we bring dear son to temple & pray..sign...
Confirm not becoz of 7mth ..... every baby is the same ...
It is comforting to know that colicky babies do not have any lasting problems once the colic stops, but it can be very hard to listen to the long periods of crying every day. Here are some practical tips to help comfort your crying baby:
• Give your baby a nice warm bath and then swaddle them in a warm blanket.
• Gently massage your baby's tummy in a clockwise direction.
• Ask your doctor or health pratitioner to show you different winding techniques .
• Move your baby’s legs in a cycling motion.
• Rock your baby back and forth or pop them in the car for a drive - the movement can help settle them.
• Some baby milks are specially formulated to be more easily digested and soften stools, helping ease your baby's digestive discomfort. They can also prevent your baby taking in too much air while feeding, which can also contribute to colic.
If you have any worries about your baby's health, it's always best to talk to your doctor or health practitioner.

my daughter now in the afternoon also like that pkshl mummy..
she will be screaming and i have to cool myself down.. i feel really pek chek when she scream non stop.
lik today she wakes up and is her feeding time so i feed her, when drinking she sucks a bit then her hands and legs start to move a lot and there she goes her screaming. i force milk into her she scream lagi worst. ongoing for 15 mins. i buay tahan i use napkin and wrap her put at yao lan for her to sleep. she quiet a while then scream again. scream until i cannot tahan again i bring the milk back then she sucks properly. after drink, she good mood and will talk baby language to her then she smile and talks to me back.
my daughter was like your son when she was 1 month old +. when i take care of dear daughter by myself, i have a fix schedule for her.
5am - try let her drink milk.
530 - start wiping her with warm water, change to pyjamas and diapers.
600 - wrap her like how she was in hospital and she will sleep till around 11-0130. like yest she never wakes up at 0130 we wake her up for milk then she sleep again. 3 hours later wake up again for milk.
i never change her schedule and she has sleeping straight 5 hours ever since.
there was one time she kept screaming. i let her drink fei zhai shui ( gripewater) put into her milk. after that she pang sai.. and she gek until her face was white. after that she rest on her pillow so shag.
Probably your son has stomachache? did he pangsai these few days??
Did he smile and talk to you in the day?
dont think of its because of 7th month then baby like that.. it will make you more worried.
im not sure iszit he has tummy ache, earlier after bath, hubby rubbed ru yi oil on his tummy then he kept farting, i tink he might poo later or tomorrow. last time he pooed was on fri evening.
i tried playing with him but he like no reaction, dont know how to smile, i even sing song to him, he just look at me blankly or stare into the air & kept stretching his hands and legs. how to make him smile and talk to me ?
i tink i will try your method.but now he's 2mths + still need to wrap?
i dont think it has anything to do with 7th month =)
dear son also like that once in awhile... 1st time when we encountered this, brought him to pediatrician, pediatrician said his tummy got lotsa wind (colic) and gave him colic drop... after few days, better... but now, once in awhile he still cries badly..
sometimes we notice he got lotsa wind and my mum will apply ru yi oil and carry him tightly.. sometimes is because he is too tired alrdy, wanna sleep but not willing to sleep on his own, want us to pat him thus keep crying non-stop no matter what we do...
if you suspect your son has colic, better bring him to a pediatrician, so he can prescribe him some medi =)
i still wrap her cos her hands very busy. will keep rubbing her eyes, knocking her head or when she already sleep, she will suddenly get a shock then she will cry and awake again.
hmm my girl started anyhow talk so i anyhow talk to her also. and also when you talk to him must laugh or smile widely so he will follow. suddenly one day she speak "oh gu" and we now communicate using this word. one time we wear hat for her, she didnt like it and cry. then i saw and laugh with my hubby.. she heard and see we laugh she suddenly change so fast she started laughing so loudly. so i think baby see the atmosphere also. hehe...
dont worry k..your son will guai guai soon..
i boy had colic previously. i initially suspect is reflux. brought him to pediatrician cause really cannot tahan his frequent cryings. usually starts 6pm all the way through the night! pediatrician confirm it to be colic cause tummy got wind.
search online for info on this and tried all methods mention. carry baby upright , walk , jump , jog dance . tok sing laugh cry. EVERYTHING! most of those dont work for me at all. n those that work only last for 10mins. after 1omins baby will start crying badly again.
tried ru yi oil. apply every diaper change. but like no effect.
pediatrician prescribe this orange syrup for colic. it helped a little. for 2 or 3 days baby was better. then decide to stop giving him the syrup. and the nightmare came back again.
gave up n gave in. let my mom try her 'traditional' method. she got super lots of all this funny funny ways . and im glad this one for colic worked!!
she use you - seaseme oil. n abit of baby power. put like one teaspoon of you on the palm n add one or two teaspoon of baby powder then use both hand rub rub hard hard. will become super hot. then when you feel its really very very very hot quickly rub it on baby's tummy. both side of the belly button part. then wrap tight tight. best is if can use cloth nappy wrap. cause need to wrap tight tight. diapers also can , but for me cloth nappy works better.
did this for two mornings and baby's well now!! completely removes the wind.
mummies can try see see. no guarantee . it worked for me. no harm trying.
