The Fussy Newborn (Colic and more)

In this episode, I discuss:

  • The definition of colic and why I don’t like labeling a fussy baby as “colicky.”
  • Infant gas. Why it happens and how to help babies.
  • Tips to soothe a fussy baby
  • When to be concerned about a baby who is inconsolable
  • The psychological impact of taking care of a fussy infant and the correlation I see between postpartum depression/anxiety and colic.
  • Some tips to help you through those tough moments.
