I just saw this on the news and thought it was interesting. Mom

Do you have migraines? Did you have a colicky baby?

I had migraines off and on with DS and some with this baby.

No colic at all. No reflux. Nothing.

Interesting!

I had major migraines with both girls (I'm prone to migraines anyway) and neither had colic or any reflux issues. I've only had a few migraines this time.

My oldest had colic bad!!! He would cry for hours straight. They finally gave him some drops for it. I don't recall if I had migraines though it's been so long.

I had migraines growing up. I grew out of them in my late teens. Not sure if that's relevant but my daughter did not have colic. I don't think your husband would be a factor on this one.

I had them with dd, and she was not a fussy baby at all.

Didnt have them with DS, and again, no fussy baby.

I had them a few months ago, until i went to the Chiro, and they were able to work out some of the pain in my neck that was causing it, so we will see how Olivia turns out.

Migraines almost all my adult life.

First baby no issues.

Second had digestion issues and would projectile vomit every single feeding for a year. Had to have AR formula. However, she has a different dad than baby #1 and him as well as his family has "sensitive stomach" issues. Even as adults they eat the wrong thing and end up in the bathroom the rest of the day.

So with this baby, I kind of figured it's a genetic thing more than anything else and I'm going straight to the "gentle ease" formula.

Don't think migraines had anything to do with it. Wish it would have been that simple. It would have saved ALOT of heart ache in NICU and childrens hospitals early on.

There was also a study out how people who where colicky as babies are more prone to migraines-some are thinking that some colic is actually migraines in babies.

I read it a few years ago- don't know if I can find it.

yeah on the news they added that part and said they are studying how removing all stimulation as per a migraine helps with colic.

huh... interesting. I think I get migraines (never been officially diagnosed). DS spit up a ton especially if I ate the wrong thing. but I was never told he was colicky per say.

I have migranes. Out of the three, wyatt is the only one with reflux and colic. It was miserable! Sooo hard to care for, even with two meds. The girls were fine. A little reflux early on, but it cleared up by 3 months. I'm concerned for this baby tho because he's a boy as well.
