Infantile colic can be very stressful for parents whose baby is inconsolable during crying episodes. Colic is often defined by the “rule of three”: crying for more than three hours per day, for more than three days per week, and for longer than three weeks in an infant who is well-fed and otherwise healthy...

 

Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro:  Whether you are a parent or not, infantile colic isn't good for anyone! Colic is constant crying, which is caused by an unhappy digestive system in the baby. In this article, Dr. Peter Braglia discusses why colic happens and the research behind solutions.

Our brains are hard-wired for grammar, rhythm and flow - in other words, for stories. An infant, when played a tape of a mother's comforting words in Chinese or English or Russian, will smile at the observer's face. But when the same types of sounds are removed from their context, are scrambled and played as random 'nonsense', the infant shows distress. As we learn words we continue to express our need for order through storytelling...

Laughing is ingrained in us from birth. Infants begin smiling during the first weeks of life and laugh out loud within months of being born. Laughter becomes an important part of our daily lives from then on. So why is laughter so important and what does it do for us?...

Acupuncture/TCM


by Patricia Hatherly

Humans are the only species who drink the milk of another in order to survive. In making that choice we swap mortality for morbidity and the psychological and physical sequelae are well documented. The reasons why we do this are complex and it's a constant struggle for the modern woman to achieve a balance between what she gives to herself and what she gives to her infant...

 

Editor's Note: Patricia Hatherly is a trained homeopath and educator, well known around the world for her work in the 'milk' remedies in homeopathic medicine. Here she gives a 'homeopathic recipe' to enable mothers to continue giving mother's milk after weaning.

 

Homeopathy


 

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: It's never too early to begin nourishing your child. Ayurveda recommends abhyanga oil massage to protect against Vata early on, even for babies! This detailed video reviews how to massage an infant with specific attention to the stroke types, start times and environment (warm and comfortable). Abhyanga allows the nourishing oil to lubricate the skin, muscles and joints, calms the nervous system and encourages restful sleep. *Note that they are using organic coconut oil, which is fine during summertime, but luke warm sesame oil is best thoroughout the rest of the year when it is cold, to encourage ciruclation. Enjoy this wonderful practice with your baby and the beautiful bond it creates. Namaste.

So much of what I’ve been learning about lately is around vulnerability. Vulnerability in a psychological sense, of seeing my own limitations and being willing to acknowledge them. And also in a more cognitive and spiritual sense. The cognitive vulnerability has to do with dropping common ways of knowing and doing things, and stepping into new and uncomfortable territory, kind of like an infant when it takes a few shaky steps...

 

Editor's Note: I'm a big fan of Vincent Horn's podcast and writings. He has a remarkable wisdom for his age and loves tackling important questions.
