So this, um, myth or bad tip, um, follows nicely from the first one about all babies cry and this is, wait until 12 weeks and your baby will be better. Now, I can tell you this doesn’t always happen because I see babies who have come in for help with their parents and the parents have waited 12 weeks and they’re like, “We’re here. My baby’s still crying.” They’ve already gone 12 weeks of having a crying baby. They’re tired. They’re more than tired and they wish they’d come in two weeks and then the baby might have been better very very much quicker than 12 weeks.
So okay, there are some babies that will get better about that 12 week mark. They’re bigger. They’re stronger. Their digestion is a bit better and things may creep and go but if you look at the causes of colic, the causes of reflux, some of those just don’t naturally just disappear.
You know, you’re going to see and hear that antibiotics is a big cause of colic, wind, diarrhea, constipation, tummy pain in a baby. What if your baby had antibiotics at nine weeks and then that’s upsetting them until they’re 15 weeks old? You know, that baby had become upset farther along the line. Okay, um, but these babies can still be jumpy and ratty past 12 weeks, okay.
And this is the important thing though, if you bring them in earlier, um, or you you look at the advice here earlier, you could have fix them sooner and these, um, lots of these problems that they have, are they have a cause and that’s the whole point.
For example, antibiotics again. That gives them colic. You’re gonna you’re gonna watch lots of videos on that. And there is a way of fixing that with the probiotics. So, if for example, you had antibiotics at the delivery, you can then fix that much sooner and they’re better.
If your baby naturally gets better at 12 weeks, you still haven’t applied the fix of the probiotics which helps the gut. Okay fine, their colic might have gone or they might be crying but you’re being proactive and repairing them now by looking at the material in this course. So even if they are better at 12 weeks, you could have made them even better by following the advice in this course and lots of the things that we do now that you will learn about now are the future health of your baby years into the future. So you’re really gonna benefit from them.
