The Unsettled Baby and Infantile Colic with Aude Cholet

Inconsolable crying. Is it CMPA? Transient lactose intolerance? GORD? Infantile colic? The majority of babies cry for 2-3 hours a day, and that's completely normal. It's just how babies express themselves! Aude Cholet, dietician who designed the Hampshire Infant Feeding Guidelines, joins me on this episode of Fontanelle to discuss the treatable causes of excessive crying, which include CMPA, transient lactose intolerance and GORD. If red flags and treatable causes have been excluded, in a baby under 3 months who is crying for more than 3 hours a day, more than 3 days a week for longer than 3 weeks, you're looking at infantile colic. Infantile colic has a huge effect on bonding and attachment. It is the most common reason for stopping breast feeding as well as being the leading cause of shaken baby syndrome. for more information and links go to www.fontanellepod.com www.what0-18.nhs.uk https://cks.nice.org.uk/colic-infantile#!topicSummary Don't forget to subscribe and leave a review on iTunes 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Thank you for listening!
