Many pregnant people envision the early days of parenthood snuggled close with their new cooing baby. But, what happens when the dream-like vision collides with brutal reality of a constantly crying baby? One in four babies suffer from a condition called, colic. The baby cries for long stretches of time with little break and no obvious reason as to what is wrong. You can imagine the stress, frustration and sense of helplessness this puts on new parents.
In this episode of Yoga| Birth|Babies, I speak with Licensed Mental Health Counselor and mother of a colicky baby, Jackie DelVecchio. Jackie shares her story of having a colicky baby and what she learned about herself as a new parent. As a social worker, Jackie specializes in Perinatal Mental Health and draws on her experiences to support other parents living through life with a colicky baby. She offers solids tips for coping through this challenging and transient time.
