my 2nd son was born 2 year ago, he cried everyday for about 3 months after birth without apparent reasons.. we have consulted doctors/specialists to find out what's wrong? The answer?... nothing wrong with my sons. It was really taking a toll on my wife and me, worried, lack of sleep.. my mum advise me to seek help from a spiritual healer, and she gave my son full name and adrress (this 2 info only) to the spiritual healer. afterwards the healer tell us that something wrong with the water that we used to make my son milk and ask us to properly boiled the water. (we actually used the hot mineral water machine which the water are not properly boiled) After few day, my son stop crying & he on cry at the proper time...of which we are very thankful.. Do you have similar experiences?

Nope i cant say we had any problems like that. It does make me wonder though - why weren't you boiling the water you were making your son's milk with? I'm not surprised your son was crying, you boil the water to sterilise it & make it safe for a babies delicate belly & by not doing so, you were making his belly hurt. I don't think it would take a spiritual healer for this, it would have been in all the baby information & also on the tin of the formula you were using. Please don't think i'm being harsh but you're giving a spiritual healer a lot of credit for something that you should have known to do all along!

Oh i also wanted to add that a doctor/specialist was never going to pick up anything other than it was a tummy ache - coz that's all it was, hence why they would have thought there was nothing wrong :)

looking back, yes it pretty stupid of me (with capital S) not to properly boiled the water. we used hot water from mineral water machine to make my son's milk. my first son(now 3yo) have no problem with it actually, that's why we did not suspect anything. sometimes we did something that we regret later .. you are not being harsh thanks.

Hi, No docs are not Gods, and could be wrong. Its upto parents to make the final judgement on treating their child. Double checking is always advisable.

Sometimes babies get colicky. No matter what they drink or how much they get air bubbles in the bellies and they can not seem to get rid of it. No, doctors don't always know, especially if they can not find anything medically wrong. Sometimes the smallest change in a baby's formula or the water used to mix it can be the best thing.
