pregnancy, teething and colic - helpful tips

pregnancy
Indigestion is often a problem, later on in pregnancy.

Eat little and often. Make sure if you are going out that you have food at hand. For example, sunflower seeds or dried apricots, easy to carry around and very good for you.

Water – Drink plenty of water throughout the pregnancy.

Exercise – As much walking as you can take. During the final trimester it is very important. Bending down can cause acid to rise, so it is better to bend from the knee, again this would be during the final trimester.

relax
Playing relaxation music during the pregnancy. Dr. Alexandra Lamont, a psychologist who specialises in music and the effect it has on the unborn child has noted that calming music playing during pregnancy will be recognised by your baby, who will again calm down on hearing it. Therefore, relaxing music that you play while you are pregnant has the effect of not only relaxing you and your baby in the womb, but with repeated listening your baby will feel calm and relaxed whenever you play this music.

teething baby
Irritable. Contraditory – wants something, then doesn’t want it. Likes being carried. Homeopathic remedy: Chamomilla
Also if stool tends to be greenish, think of Chamomilla. Teething will often affect the whole digestive system, causing diarrhoea. Another symtom is one cheek red, the other white.

Red, hot, flushed face, cold hands and feet. Very upset baby. Homeopathic remedy: Belladonna

[Mucus - Babies sometimes appear to be pulling on one ear or another during teething. This can be because of a build-up of mucus, which often accompanies teething.]

colic
Chamomilla – Extremely irritable. Nothing satisfies the baby, except to be carried.
Colic often accompanies teething.

Pulsatilla – Colic after mother has eaten rich foods (only affects baby is mother is breastfeeding)

Colocynth – Extreme colic. Baby keeps bring knees up to abdomen. Massaging the tummy helps.
[Homeopathic remedies should be in the 30c potency. They can be purchased in most chemists. Follow instructions on the container.]

If colic has been a problem since birth, you might consider going to a Cranial Osteopath. This is a very gentle form of osteopathy, particularly suitable for babies.

bonding with your baby
Massage - Find time each morning when you can snuggle up to each other. Massaging your baby can be very relaxing, especially if your baby’s tummy is tense after feeding. Be very gentle.

Bathing your baby – you can get in the bath with your baby, it could be fun!

breastfeeding
Cracked nipples - One of the problems with breastfeeding can be cracked nipples. Calendula cream on the nipples will help. Simply wipe off just before breastfeeding.

Tension - If your baby is restless, or you are tense during breastfeeding – play Calmtime. This should help you both and will serve as a trigger for relaxation whenever it is time to feed.

sleep
Bad habits - Whilst having your baby in bed with you during the early days can be comforting, to continue the habit would be a mistake. Babies then get used to the warmth of another body and will continually want this. The best thing to do is after your baby is fast asleep, take him/her back to their own bed.
