Your Tip for Calming Fussy Babies Could Be a Winner
If you've found yourself soothing your baby by vacuuming in the dark, taking a car ride at 2 a. or singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" a cappella, then you're not alone. Parents are apt to try out-of-the-ordinary remedies for a moment of silence when their babies become fussy. Babies' cries tell you a lot about their moods, whether they're tired, upset or hungry. Some parents may notice their baby's excessive fussiness occurs during and after feeding times.
Nearly 1 million infants experience common feeding problems at some point during their first year of life, which may be due to a baby's developing tummy being intolerant of a cow's milk-based formula. Here are a few signs that may indicate a feeding problem: * Fussiness after each feeding * Unwillingness to eat * Curling legs up in discomfort after feedings * Excessive gassiness * Excessive spitting-up after each feeding or vomiting * Change in stool consistency If you suspect your baby may have a feeding problem, discuss these symptoms with your pediatrician. Improvement in formula tolerance can be related to the formula or the effect of switching formula. Clinical evidence supports that switching from a milk-based infant formula to Isomil Advance, a soy-based infant formula, can reduce fussiness, gas and spit-up in most infants in just three days.
