Body Learns (Screaming Baby)
April 17th 2010 03:35
As I've said before my Son now screams in delight, previously, that was not so. In his first few weeks he, like many newborns and their underdeveloped G.I. tracts, had problems dealing with gas. I didn't know this at the time. I originally hardly burped him. Some Babies have no problem handling gas while others, like my Son, do not. Once I realized the issue, I burped him frequently, after and during feedings. I also learned the excessive gas was due to his dairy sensitivity so I eliminated that from my diet. Another thing I incorporated was Mylicon (Gas-x for infants). I now use Little Tummys since it's all natural and I know all the ingredients. If you can't read it or understand it, don't eat it.
The downfall is I come from a very gassy family. So it's not surprising. What is interesting is I watched an episode of Good Eats on Food Network about Beans. Alton Brown explains how the body deals with gas and foods that create it. He said the more you expose your digestive tract the better your body handles it. It just takes time. It's amazing that your body can learn. It shouldn't though. The Chiropractor or even my old Martial Arts (Karate) Sensei (Instructor) told me about Muscle Memory which is why we practiced so much. It is also why you initially go to the Chiropractor frequently at first to train your spine and muscles to remember correct positioning for a healthier body.
Now Infants have much to learn so it explains a lot when you think about it- the mind can learn and so does the body. It all just takes time.
As you can see, there are a few links provided. I do try to show you my resources. You're welcome to click and look. There is a Wikipedia link but it is only because it has so many valid sources available at the bottom of the page. Just thought I'd mention it.
