This is the only way I can get her to sleep when she has these pains...

My 2 month old has what is thought to be really bad Colic, I will put her in her bassinette after a feed awake. after about 10 minutes or so she will start to grunt as she is trying to fall asleep, this will sometimes stop and she will gall asleep but sometimes its ends up getting the better of her and she starts to cry. I try to resetle her in the cot but most of the time am unable to as she is feeling alot of pain. I end up picking her up and nursing her to sleep she is still really wiggly and still cries in my arms for sometime before finally falling asleep. This is the only way I can get her to sleep when she has these pains I am worried about her getting used to this? Belinda

Answer: Hi Belinda, I`m a midwife dealing with pregnancy, childbirth and newborns. It`s best to direct your sleep related questions to Maree, or see your Early Childhood Health Centre. Best wishes, Alex
