Insurance Covered Baby Formula Educates Parents: What You Should Know if Baby Has Colic
Insurance Covered Baby Formula, a company dedicated to helping parents get coverage for specialty baby formula, is educating parents on what to know if their baby has colic and what they can do about it.
A baby crying is no surprise. However, it can be disheartening as a parent if their baby is crying for hours on end. A baby having colic is not a pleasant introduction to parenthood for anyone. One in four babies can be affected by colic. Parents can take heart in learning that it is a fairly common condition that is common in babies 6 weeks and younger and usually goes away by the time the baby is 4 months old.
To understand what colic is, there needs to an observation of how often the baby cries for no obvious reason like hunger or any other health conditions. A baby is diagnosed as having colic based on three rules that are the baby cries at least 3 hours a day, the crying episodes occur at least three days a week, and the crying episodes persist for at least three weeks in a row. It is unknown why some babies have colic and there are a few theories as to why. One theory that is gaining the most popularity is that babies might have a milk protein allergy that causes them distress.
It is unknown exactly how to help a baby with colic but switching to a hypoallergenic baby formula is one of the ideas that parents can try. It is theorized that babies might have problems digesting lactose or milk protein. If babies are allergic to dairy, even if they are breastfed, when the mother consumes dairy, she might pass along the protein through the breast milk. If a pediatrician agrees that colic might be caused because of an allergy, they can prescribe a hypoallergenic formula.
The biggest barrier to acquiring hypoallergenic baby formula is the cost as it can be very expensive. It can be useful to be prescribed a formula that is covered by insurance. Insurance Covered Baby Formula provides a service that fits this niche. They work with the parent’s insurance company to get the desired formula covered. They are an in-network provider with most insurance companies and work on the behalf of the parents to ensure their specialty hypoallergenic baby formula is covered.
