Q.

Collic

My child has been crying continuosly and someone told me that he is collic, he is busy pushing his teeth out at the moment. He is 4 months. Could he be collic or are the other symtoms that i need to look out for.

Your baby is now 'too old' to be developing colic. He must be teething. Apply a little Pansoral gel to his gums especially where his first teeth will appear at around 6 months. These are his 2 lower incisors.

RATHER WAIT FOR THE DOCTOR TO REPLY ON THIS ONE, I ALSO STARTED WITH PURITY ON 4 MONTHS THE ONES WITH NO PRESERVITIVES, MINE HAD COLLIC, HE IS 8 MONTHS OLD AND EATS WELL, SLEEPS WELL AND HAS 2 TEETH. BUT IT WAS A LONG BATTLE TO WHERE WE ARE NOW. GOOD LUCK!

He sarted about 3 days ago. He is only 4 months old. he has also just started eating purity, so i am not sure that this is the problem, the docter said it is fine to put him on the purity. This is my second child.

when did the ' collic'  start? is this your first child? if it sarted when the baby was born till now then you could look at collic, otherwise it may be the teeth, they start drooling and putting their hands in their mouths by this age, the teeth could come out anytime from now till 7 to 12 months. if the teeth is out all is forgotten, it' s like weight have been lifted from your shoulders. if it is collic don' t get mad at your baby for crying they can feel your anger, give him love and rub his tummy or his back.
