What is a colicky baby?

Colic is a condition that affects about 1 in 5 babies. It is characterized by prolonged crying spells, often in the evening or at night. Colic can be very frustrating for parents, as there is no known cure. However, there are some things that can help to soothe a colicky baby, and bamboo pajamas can be one of them.

Why bamboo pajamas?

Bamboo pajamas are soft and stretchy, making them easy to change. This is important for colicky babies, as they may need to be changed frequently due to diaper leaks or spit-up. Bamboo pajamas are also very breathable, which can help to keep baby cool and comfortable.

Here are some other tips for having a colicky baby:

  • Swaddle your baby. Swaddling can help to calm and soothe a colicky baby.
  • Hold your baby close. Skin-to-skin contact can help to soothe a colicky baby.
  • Rock or swing your baby. Rocking or swinging can help to calm and soothe a colicky baby.
  • Play white noise. White noise can help to mask other noises and can be calming for a colicky baby.
  • Feed your baby on demand. Feeding your baby on demand can help to reduce hunger and fussiness.
  • Take breaks. It's important to take breaks when caring for a colicky baby. If you're feeling overwhelmed, ask your partner, friend, or family member for help.
