All babies cry. After all, crying is the only way they know how to communicate that they are hungry, tired or uncomfortable. For parents, understanding those cries and finding quick solutions can be challenging.
This type of crying is usually attributed to disruptions in your baby’s normal schedule, and is rarely due to discomfort associated with a feeding issue. It may be time for your baby to eat or sleep, or your baby may be overstimulated.
Feeding-related crying can be associated with baby’s discomfort digesting formula or breast milk. This type of crying is usually accompanied by fussiness and gas after feedings.
Enfamil PREMIUM® Gentlease® is designed to ease fussiness, gas and crying in 24 hours. It has complete nutrition and is gentle on sensitive tummies.
Crying associated with an allergy
When your baby’s crying is persistent and not related to hunger, sleep or general discomfort, an allergy to cow’s milk protein may be the cause. Colic tends to follow a pattern of threes: crying for more than three hours per day (usually in the evening), for more than three days per week, and for more than three weeks. You should consult your pediatrician to determine if your baby’s crying is the result of a cow’s milk protein allergy.
Nutramigen® with Enflora™ LGG®* is clinically proven to manage colic due to cow’s milk allergy.
