Flatulence and gaseousness are the most common health problems that can really worry in every age. Regarding the babies, problems with belly-ache can occur mainly in the first three months of the age. This is usually related to immaturity of the digestive system which is getting used to life outside the mother's body. This sometimes includes the painful condition known as baby or three-month colic. There are many guides to help babies. However, if you feel that your baby's problems are more serious than just the ordinary farts, you shall not hesitate to visit a paediatrician to determine cause of difficulties and avoid serious illness.
Infant colic occurs suddenly, without any cause, in otherwise-healthy babies. It often ends up with flatus release. It is mainly accompanied by restlessness and never-ending cry. If your baby often suffers from painful belly, you can try out the following tips:
The most effective solutions are cuddling, wearing in the scarf, rocking or swinging in a baby-coach with singing, humming or silent talking. Close wrapping in swaddling clothes is also effective; a baby takes it as mother's tummy.
You can also try out some relieve positions:
We also recommend slightly heated-up nappy on the belly or hot bath (never combine the both together). Belly massage can also bring some relief. We can stroke the baby clockwise around the belly button. Sometimes, the baby gets calmed by monotonous background sound, running vacuum cleaner or washing machine in the next room.
Well, our grandmothers already knew that fennel is a good medicine for inflated abdomen. Children at the age from 4 months can be served an apple drink with fennel; they will surely like it thanks to delicious taste of apples. In addition to all these measures, you can feed your baby regularly with drops healing flatulence; those which facilitate absorption of gases in the intestine and their natural discharge. Application of the medicine is very fast and easy. For relief of infants, you can simply add the number of drops indicated in the package to each bottle of baby food, or you can drop it on a teaspoon and serve it to the infants immediately before each milking.

I was an otter in the previous life. Or jellyfish. I love swimming in rivers, lakes and seas. I do water sports whenever it is possible. Or I at least fill the bathtub. When I was pregnant, I planned water games with the baby who still remembers Water Park in the womb. I enthusiastically signed my five-month-old Máťa for infant swimming and I was looking forward to the first lesson.
Sensible parents know very well that regular motion is very important for children’s healthy development. Motion, especially that one in the fresh air, brings many benefits. In addition to the positive effects on the physical and mental aspects of a child, sport is also a great way to create new friendships and team-building. Children who have been doing sports and games since very young childhood have more friends; they are in groups of friends where they can share experiences and where they learn from each other.
Unfortunately, music is not in the forefront in a variety of instructions and recommendations for what all is necessary for attention of young children. Well, children may listen to a song. And the older children may select and switch on the songs on TV, PC or tablet. "Artificial" music can never replace singing together with mum or dad. This is about joy shared together.
If children get used to the fact that motion is a part of their lifestyle, there is only a small step to do some active sport a bit later. You can take a choice of classic football, hockey, volleyball, tennis, gymnastics or ballet. Let’s try to start with children's yoga. You do not have to be extremely keen on yoga for your children to start learning this.
Sometimes, even the adult people are afraid of doctors. And what about the children who are often full of fear of strange people and fantasy ideas... We can never completely protect a baby against fear and pain; it is even not desirable. However, we should try to get firm and quiet support for the baby in such uncomfortable situations.
A brand new bed was waiting for Máťa in his room a month before he was born. White bed fitted with health mattress and playing carousel. I was given a "milking" chair for my birthday. So, I placed it straight next to the bed. I can milk my baby in the armchair; put him on the bed and open a book... Rather a naive idea, as I can see.
A baby is curling; his/her face is reddish. He/she is pulling the legs to belly. Screaming and inconsolable. When belly hurts, all family gets distracted very quickly. What to do with that?
