NY infantile colic affects normal infants, where the baby cries for three hours a day, at least three days a week, over the span of three weeks. Excessive gas, abnormal peristalsis, and food allergies or intolerances have been suggested causes of infantile colic, but the exact cause has not been determined.
It is during the first two weeks of a newborn’s life that infantile colic can begin. Infantile colic reaches a peak at approximately 6 weeks and eventually stops in the second or third month. As a matter of fact, 20-30% of infants are affected by infantile colic in New York. The infant usually starts to cry at the end of the day and usually at around the age when the parents start to really feel the sleep deprivation. It should come to no surprise that the parents feel dejected and discouraged from caring for their colicky infant.
Upon visiting the chiropractor, Dr. Jay Handt and Dr. Josh Handt, your baby will go through a detailed health history and diagnostic exam to figure out how severe the infantile colic is. Then, a personalized chiropractic treatment plan will be created for your baby.
