Is there a way to appease a colicky baby?

The composition of the mother's milk is, of course, affected by the mother's diet, and thus the concentration of various nutrients in the milk are reflections of the maternal diet. Lactation requires a lot of nutrition and requires a certain caloric expenditure, so it is very important for mothers to be attentive to what they eat and to seek a healthy and balanced diet. Another important factor is to always stay hydrated. Water intake is essential during lactation.

 

Food ingested by the mother can also cause colic in the baby.

Did you know that nursing is as important for the baby as it is for the mother?

Nursing is as important for the baby as it is for the mother. Maternal milk is the best and most complete food for the baby. It is the only necessary and essential food during the first 6 months of life. During this time, the baby should not receive teas, juice, or even water. Some employ the use of teas to reduce cramps and calm the baby, however, offering teas, and any other liquid causes the baby to ingest less of the mother's milk thereby reducing the essential nutrient supply and anti-infective factors contained in the milk, which consequently weakens the child's defense organism.
