Colic, the crying baby and how to help

Parents can’t wait to welcome their precious newborn into the world, it’s a magical time where we dream of endless cuddles, happiness, smiles and contentment. And then colic strikes and throws a spanner in the works. A colicky baby is very distressing for baby and parents, tensions can be high in the household, trying to figure out what helps and what makes things worse, not knowing when the crying will stop, when your baby will finally go to sleep, you run out of ways to soothe, nothing seems to work and your baby does not relax like other babies, it’s relentless, heartbreaking and you feel helpless…and then it’s feeding time again. You feel mentally and physically drained and need to resolve this. 

So what is Colic and what are the symptoms of Colic? 

  • Colic is not a medical diagnosis but a blanket term given to crying and fussy babies who can be difficult to settle, discontented, and can be hard to establish a proper routine; some appear to have sharp intermittent pains or cramps in their abdomen, where no cause for these symptoms has been found. So we don’t know what is wrong or what is causing the discomfort and upset with the colicky baby, we just know the baby isn’t happy……Yes I agree, that’s not very helpful, we want answers and solutions! 
  • A newborn baby’s organs are still growing and developing, and some are more sensitive than others to the feeding process and the foods that they are exposed to via breastfeeding. A difficult birth can exaggerate these issues amongst other issues. 
  • You may see your baby pulling their legs up, maybe to their chest, they could arch their back, crying a lot, often this happens during a feed or straight after. This can be your babies way of trying to escape the discomfort.
  • Wind/Flatulence can be an issue. 
  • Stools may be mucousy, too frequent, or difficult to pass, or a strange colour. 
  • Lots of crying and difficult to settle. 

When does colic start? When does colic go away? 

Colic can start from birth or days or weeks afterwards. Usually colic is resolved by 6 months if not before. There are extra complexities if your baby also has reflux or food allergies. Lots of parents turn to Homeopathy for help so that their baby can recover from colic and reflux sooner.  

How much crying is normal? 

All babies cry, which is a great thing as it’s their way of communicating with the parents when they want a need to be met e.g. to be fed, sleep, be warmer/colder, for comfort etc. On average, a newborn baby cries 2.5 hours in any 24 hour period. Babies labelled with Colic can cry for longer, be very upset when crying, look uncomfortable and miserable and may do a lot of squirming, lifting legs up to chest etc. 

So what is really going on with your colicky baby? 

As a Homeopath, I seek to understand the root cause so I can identify the right remedy to bring about balance and heal your baby – I will be questioning what is causing so much distress, discontentment and pain for your baby? My approach is holistic so I take into account and question a wide variety of options to get to the bottom of why your baby is suffering in order to provide solutions to the issues at play; 

  • Is your baby’s digestive system too immature to cope with feeding? Which are the best tools suitable to help build tolerance and gut health? e.g. homeopathic gut improving remedies, baby probiotics, food for the mum.  
  • Is their nervous system underdeveloped?   
  • Does your baby have food allergies or milk/CMPA allergies? 
  • Is reflux or silent reflux a factor in your baby’s colic?  
  • Have medications during pregnancy, birth or after caused a problem in your baby? Is a baby friendly cleanse suitable?
  • Has there been a trauma, grief, disappointment, upset during pregnancy, birth or beyond that has shifted the internal balance for your baby? 
  • Has the birth left an emotional mark on your baby in terms of shock? 

Understanding the complexities of each individual baby helps guide me on what prescription is required to rid discomfort, improve the gut and bring about balance and contentment in your baby. 

What can I do to help my Colicky baby? 

  • Rule out any serious underlying issues – see a paediatrician/Doctor for an examination and diagnosis and if colic is accompanied by persistent vomiting, diarrhea, constipation or absence of urine then see a Doctor. Once you know that the crying is not an underlying serious issue then you can move onto other options..
  • Is it reflux or silent reflux? – See my blog on reflux even if there is no vomit visible then your baby may have silent reflux where the acid and milk doesn’t reach the mouth or is swallowed rather than being vomited. 
  • Consider CMPA Allergy or intolerance – If your baby has been diagnosed with colic then its essential to note that many babies can be lactose intolerant as they do not have enough lactase to digest the lactose in the milk or may have CMPA (cows milk protein allergy) which can be causing or making the colic worse. For Bottle fed babies –  you can try changing the babies formula. A goat milk formula may help as it’s easier to digest than Cows milk. Or a lactose free formula, or if diagnosed with CMPA then an extensively hydrolysed formula (EHF) like Nutramigen or amino acid based formula (AAF) like Neocate can be introduced. It is best to do this under the advice of a health care professional and to understand the soy and sugar content in any formula that you switch to (some have levels higher than you would like!). If Breastfed then eliminate dairy/milk products from your diet for at least 7 days and observe if there are any changes in your baby. 
  • Food allergies or irritants for Breastfeeding babies –certain foods in your diet can be causing sensitivities in your baby’s digestive system. Try eliminating certain high suspect foods by stopping the food for 7 days and see if there is an improvement, if no improvement at all then re-introduce and eliminate another food. If there is a slight improvement but not enough then you can try eliminating another food too. Potential irritants are; lactose or protein in cows milk/dairy, egg, soy, wheat/gluten, coffee, chocolate, spices, onions, cruciferous (gassy) vegetables, cabbage, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, strawberries, oranges and grapes. If you eat a lot of a certain food then try eliminating that first to see if that’s an issue, or if you are slightly sensitive to a food that you still eat then try eliminating that. You are being a detective and the clues are in the symptoms. If your baby’s colic is severe then you can remove them all from your diet for 7 days and see if there is an improvement, then add one back in at a time (introduce for 4 days and if no flare of symptoms then introduce another back in). 
  • Gut health/babybiome is so important – as the digestive systems is cited as being an issue in colicky babies, and I see this in my own practice, then using a baby probiotic or taking one yourself if you are breastfeeding can be beneficial. As much as 80% of the immune system comes from the gut so supplementing with probiotics can go a long way to supporting a healthy system, especially if your baby was born via C-section and/or antibiotics have been given to your baby or taken in pregnancy/breastfeeding.  Biocare have a baby friendly product
  • A really sensitive nervous system can be easily over stimulated and result in a baby that cannot calm or settle themselves, they are frazzled, tired and wound up, and don’t know what to do to stop feeling that way. Cranial osteopathy can help rebalance a baby’s nervous system to stop this escalating. Soothing music, white noise and wrapping them up firmly can also help calm your baby. 
  • Look at the patterns of crying in your baby, if there’s a particular time that your baby is worse try to prepare by having extra support there for you both, avoid social events at those times so you are not under extra pressure, you will likely cope better with the crying in the comfort of your own home or with full support from close family or friends who understand. 
  • Offer something for your baby to suckle on after and between feeds e.g. finger, dummy. Some babies want to feed a lot as suckling can provide temporarily relief and comfort. The extra milk or any overfeeding can put too much strain on their already delicate digestive system and aggravate colic. 
  • Try gently rock your baby over your shoulder to see if the gentle pressure on their tummy helps, or place your baby over your knees face down so there is pressure on their abdomen – whether they are better or worse with pressure on their abdomen will help with remedy selection. 
  • Helping with stools – if passing of a stool calms your baby or if colic precedes a stool then give them a warm bath and massage the abdomen in a circular clockwise motion. Holding your baby in a squatting position e.g. their legs pulled up a little may help. 
  • Wind – the less air in the digestive system the better and as baby’s can swallow air while they feed,  try to wind baby regularly during the feed and keep them as upright as possible when feeding.and avoid your baby empty sucking on a bottle (where there is no milk in the teat). If bottle feeding then experiment with the teat size – too small can mean baby can be trying too hard and taking in air when trying to suck the milk. Too large then the milk can come out too fast and create a lot of gulping and trapped wind as they take it in. 
  • Ask others for help so you can have a rest as you are likely to be mentally and physically exhausted and may need to step away. If you have even 5 minutes then try practicing your own relaxation techniques to bring in calm (baths, essential oils, meditation, reading, walk in nature etc) and know that ‘this too shall pass’. Although in the midst of the crying it can feel like forever, accepting that it will be a period of time and then your baby will be more comfortable will help remove any resistance to the situation and leave room for a calming environment for you and your baby.
  • And if you feel that you’ve tried everything then just surrender and do what it takes in that moment to get your baby to rest, stop crying and feel soothed…..bouncing up and down, rocking, taking baby for drives, having a silent house, a noisy house…..we will find and do anything to soothe our babies so try it all to see what provides even the tiniest bit of relief until you get longer term help to heal your baby.
  • Know that there is help for you and your baby, you don’t have to suffer. Homeopathy has lots of options and is very effective with Colic. A baby’s delicate system loves gentle, safe, effective natural medicine. Please see below for options;

Homeopathic medicines for treating your baby

  • Chamomilla 30c: Angry and Intensely irritable baby in distress, scream with anger, restless and demand to be carried, near impossible to comfort and soothe, they will complain a lot. Bloated Abdomen and stomach. Green stools, Diarrhea/runny stools, and may smell of rotten eggs. They want things which are then rejected! They drive their parent crazy as they want things and then reject them, they don’t really know what they want and nothing seems to help. If your baby is teething and has colic then try this first. Sometimes develop red cheeks. 
  • Dioscorea 30c: for babies who arch their back, stretch out and scream with pain. Their little tummy rumbles and grumbles, they are very windy. They do not want to lie down, prefer to be held upright and pains are worse in the morning and better for bending back and stretching out.
  • Colocynthis 30c: this is for babies that draw their legs up, writhe and wiggle in pain, scream with pain, pains come in waves and are severe. With a bloated abdomen and green diarrhea. The babies that need this medicine will feel some relief with pressure or rubbing on their tummy (so putting them over your knees or shoulder can help temporarily). They are better for passing a stool, or passing wind and are worse after eating or drinking, if over heated and before a bowel movement. 
  • Nux Vomica 30c: a tight tummy, spasms of pain and constipation will indicate that this remedy is needed for your baby. This can also be useful if a lot of drugs were given in child birth (it helps detox the liver). If breastfeeding the baby may be worse if you have stimulants like coffee, spicy food or chocolate. 
  • Bryonia 30c: pain is worse for the slightest motion, baby will have great thirst. Baby will draw legs up and burp. The tongue may be coated dirty white or brown in centre.
  • Aethusia 30c: For babies who cannot tolerate breast milk and have vomiting, regurgitation and/or silent reflux, inability to digest milk/CMPA allergy (intolerance or CMPA/allergy). Distressed, colic followed by posseting. 
  • Magnesium mur 30c– constipation after drinking cow’s milk. Stools can be small and knotty and passed with difficulty, with a lot of straining, and may be green.
  • Natrum Phos 6x and Magnesium Phos 6x tissue salts together -aids digestion and helps with pain, colic, cramps and spasm, pains are better for warmth and for bending double. 
  • Lycopodium 30c – for colicky babies with gas, bloating/distended stomach, gurgling noises, wind, and they may be worse between 4pm-8pm and worse with tight clothing on. They can often have a worried frown, like an older looking expression. Vomits food after eating or drinking and belches/burps, but feels better after belching and for any motion. Symptoms are worse for milk and if breastfeeding mother eats flatulent/gassy causing foods e.g. Cabbage, onion, beans.
  • Silicea 30: for babies who cant digest milk, they reject the breast, vomit up feeds but are then hungry afterwards again. Disordered digestion in general, will draw their knees up to their chest to try to get relief. 
  • Magnesia Phos 30c – for babies with cramping and spasmodic pains and flatulence. Pressure on the tummy can bring some relief, so they tend to bring their legs up when they are crying and can expel wind when moving legs up too – all of this provides some relief.  

How to give the chosen remedy

Pick the remedy that resembles your baby the most. Your baby doesn’t have to have every symptom listed for the remedy to help. Give your baby 1 pill of the remedy, every 3 hours for a total of 4 doses. Then wait to see if your baby’s symptoms improve. If some improvements happen but more are needed then continue for 2 more doses. Stop giving the remedy if no improvements are noticed. You could then choose another remedy to try that also matches your baby’s symptoms.  

To administer the remedy, dissolve one pill in a few drops / a teaspoon of milk and feed into baby’s mouth via a spoon or syringe. Or put one pill onto a dry teaspoon and crush the pill by placing another teaspoon on top of the pill. Then add milk to the teaspoon to let it dissolve, or scrape the crushed pill into baby’s mouth. *Avoiding touching the pill with your hands. 

I hope things settle down for you and your baby soon. Should you wish to discuss any problems you are having with yourself or your baby then please get in touch here for a free discovery call or find out more about Homeopathy here

Reflux in babies – symptoms and treatment

This is a subject very close to my heart and was the catalyst to introducing me to Homeopathy! My family has been benefiting from Homeopathy in endless ways since so I’m forever grateful; I learn through life that some of the most difficult situations we find ourselves in can be our greatest lessons and gifts but it’s often very hard to see that in the moment….

‘Failure to thrive’, the words echoed in my head while I rushed to the hospital with our youngest boy only 8 weeks old. The medications from the Doctors were not resolving the issues. He was constantly bringing up his milk and at the hospital he was put on a much higher dose of Omeprazole (Losec/PPI/Proton pump inhibitors) and Ranitidine (Zantac/H2 antagonists) which thankfully helped him keep some food down and grow, albeit slowly but the sickness, pain and sleep issues still continued. The doses kept increasing to allow him to keep some food down. None of this was what I imagined when having a baby, the relentless crying, feeling helpless, emotional and physical exhaustion from comforting our baby in pain. When he was 7months old, and after lots of crying, worrying and sleepless nights, I read that Homeopathy is a natural gentle medicine that works to correct the body and can help with reflux, so I consulted a Homeopath for the first time with a desperate plea for our baby to be helped. 

The Homeopath put him on a remedy (which is a nano dose of substance in nature that stimulates a healing response) that suited him overall/holistically, taking into account not just his physical symptoms but his nature, the way he behaved, his preferences and then matched this to a individualised suitable remedy. His crying calmed down, sickness reduced then stopped, sleep improved, and during this process we then weaned him off the medications and started work on repairing the gut. 

What is baby reflux? And when will baby reflux stop?  

Reflux is the spontaneous regurgitation of the stomach contents into the oesophagus (the food pipe that carries food from throat to stomach and is meant to be a one way system); it is labelled as GOR or GORD depending on severity (Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux/Disease). Some reflux in infants is normal and expected; NICE (UK) reports that at least 40% of all babies younger than 1 year have GOR and usual onset is around 8 weeks, subsiding roughly at 16 weeks. Around 90% of cases resolve before 1 year. 

When should you seek help for baby reflux? 

When symptoms are more severe for example when reflux is persistent, the infant has frequent feeding or sleeping problems, episodes of choking, failure to thrive or weight loss, Oesophagitis or/and chronic respiratory disorders (cough, recurrent wheeze, apnea). This is likely to be considered as GORD, which is a more serious form of GOR.

Symptoms and signs of baby reflux and silent reflux:

  • Spitting up/posseting or vomiting (silent reflux baby will not have this symptom as the acid and stomach contents only go up to the throat, not vomited out of the mouth). 
  • Refusing to feed
  • Fussing over feeds, feeding a little then pulling away
  • Gagging or choking during feeding, difficulty swallowing, lots of swallowing
  • Crying a lot, irritability, fussiness 
  • Discomfort  – arching back during or after feeds, colic, gassy, wind, flatulence, abdominal pains
  • Hiccups, burping, sour smelly breath
  • Restless, disturbed sleep, unsettled
  • Repetitive cough, wheezing, breathing issues

*It is important to have your baby examined by a Doctor to rule out any very serious issues. 

Why do babies get reflux? What causes baby reflux? 

Babies are prone to reflux due to physical factors such as;

  • We have a muscular ring called the LES (lower Eosphageal sphincter) at the opening of the stomach, it opens to allow food into the stomach and is meant to remain closed at all other times. However in babies this isn’t fully developed so it can stay open and lead to backflow of the stomach contents into the food pipe. 
  • We can overfeed our babies which can then lead to sickness due to too much pressure being put on the lower Eosphageal sphincter which then opens more easily creating backflow of food. 
  • Babies have a short Esophagus so food is closer to our mouths/less distance to travel to be expelled than in older children or adults. 
  • Babies are often placed horizontal soon after a feed, before most of the digestion is completed, and as their sphincter muscles are more relaxed then it is easier for the contents of the stomach to find its way back out through the Eosphagus.
  • Congenital Hiatal Hernia, present at birth, the upper part of the stomach bulges into the chest through the hiatus opening in the diaphragm, this can cause gastric acid to reflux from the stomach into the Esophagus. 

How to help your baby with reflux (and support for you too!)

  • If your baby has been diagnosed with reflux and more serious causes have been eliminated then its essential to note that many babies can be lactose intolerant or have CMPA (cows milk protein allergy) which can be causing or making the reflux worse. For breastfeeding mothers you can trial removing all dairy products from your diet for 2 weeks and see if your baby improves, or if bottle fed then change your infants formula to a lactose-free formula for 2 weeks. If diagnosed with CMPA then an extensively hydrolysed formula (EHF) like Nutramigen or amino acid based formula (AAF) like Neocate can be introduced. 
  • Keeping baby upright for as long as possible after a feed – using a sling can help. 
  • Using a wedge in the cot to elevate them while sleeping 
  • Using a baby probiotic –Optibac and Biocare have baby friendly products. As much as 80% of the immune system comes from the gut so supplementing with probiotics can go a long way to supporting a healthy system, especially if antibiotics have been given to your baby or taken in pregnancy/breastfeeding.
  • You are probably exhausted from caring for your baby with reflux, Kali phos 6x tissue salt taken 4 times a day will help support your energy and nervous system. Also supplementing with a good quality magnesium supplement can help support your nervous system to help you cope. 
  • Ask others for help – can a friend or relative take care of your baby for an hour or two in a regular time slot? This can give you time to rest or do something you love.  
  • Nourish your body by eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, good fats and high quality protein to help support your strength and energy. 

Natural solutions for baby reflux

Like me, many parents turn to Homeopathy when they have exhausted the conventional route, frustrated and feeling helpless that there is nothing more that can be done and the medications prescribed are not bringing full relief, just papering over some of the symptoms. Parents are also worried about the side effects and long-term consequences of giving the prescribed drugs to their precious baby. 

Prescription medicines such as Proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s) e.g. Omeprazole (Losec), H2 antagonists e.g. Ranitidine (Zantac) reduce stomach acid by blocking / inhibiting / decreasing acid production, thereby suppressing the symptoms of Oesophageal inflammation and pain associated with reflux, which can help babies to feed better as the pain has reduced. However, Stomach acid forms part of the body’s immune system by killing undesirable bacteria in the gut, so drugs reducing the acid make the infant more susceptible to some infections. These drugs also affect the body’s natural digestive process so important nutrients like Vitamin D, B12, B1, Iron, Zinc, Folic acid, Phosphorous, Calcium are not absorbed as effectively. 

In contrast, Homeopathic remedies stimulate the infants body to heal the root cause, to bring balance to acid production so successful treatment will correct symptoms and improve digestion resulting in no pain, better feeding, more sleep…and to add a cherry on the top it is free from side effects so it’s an ideal healing option to try with your baby suffering with reflux. 

Homeopathic baby reflux/GOR/GORD remedies

The following is recommended, as a first course of action to see if re-balancing cell salts in the body will heal your baby’s reflux;

  • Give Homeopathic tissue salts Natrum Phos 6x (helps to neutralise acids and aids digestion) and Magnesium Phos 6x (helps with pain, colic, cramps and spasm) tissue salts together, 4 times a day for 3 days and observe if there has been an improvement. If you have noticed an improvement then you can continue with the tissue salts for 4 weeks providing that you continue to see improvements. If the improvement stops then stop the tissue salts. 

If no improvement then examine the descriptions below of the remedies and choose one that most closely matches your baby’s symptoms.

To administer homeopathic pills to babies, crush one pill between two spoons and add to a small about of sterile water or milk and mix. Give a spoonful/pipette/Calpol or Tylenol type syringe of mixture 3 times daily, or as you see the symptoms in your baby. If your baby’s symptoms aren’t showing any improvement at all after 2 days then move on to the next closest remedy that matches your baby’s symptoms and try again. If there is an improvement then continue with the chosen remedy until the symptoms are resolved or stop improving. 

Aethusa 30c – for babies that have an inability to digest milk (intolerance or CMPA/allergy). Regurgitation of food as soon as swallowed or shortly after. Vomiting can be sudden and violent with large curds of white or yellow fluid or frothy matter. Distressed, colic followed by posseting. Worse at 3-4am and the evening. 

Bryonia 30 – for babies who vomit immediately after feeding, they drink eagerly and have great thirst especially for cool drinks, symptoms are worse for warm drinks. Stomach is sensitive to touch, with acute attacks of pain worse for the slightest motion. Baby will draw legs up and burp. Lips dry, cracked, dryness of mouth. The tongue may be coated heavily white, yellowish, with gastric disorders.

Chamomilla 30c – suits a baby that is angry, restless, irritable and sensitive to pain, wants things but then refuses it, they don’t really know what they want. They cry and want to be carried and consoled. Cramps with vomiting. flatulence, colic worse at night. Regurgitation of milk/ food. Symptoms are worse when teething.

Colocynthis 30c – intense pain in the baby, screams with pain, angry cry, violent, cutting, gripping, grasping, colicky pains come in waves and the baby will pull their knees up, twist, wriggle, squirm, writhe around a lot. Warmth and firm pressure makes things better e.g. being carried over shoulder or lying on tummy over parents knees. Vomiting of bitter water. Worse evening and night.

Ignatia 30c – consider this remedy if there has been a loss, grief or disappointment for either the mum or the baby, during pregnancy or since birth. The emotional upset can affect the gut and body functions. Physical symptoms include regurgitation of milk/ food or bitter water, vomiting of mucus, periodical cramps or spasms worse for slightest contact.

Lycopodium 30c – for colicky babies with gas, bloating/distended stomach, gurgling noises, wind, and they may be worse between 4pm-8pm and worse with tight clothing on. They can often have a worried frown, like an older looking expression. Vomits food after eating or drinking and belches/burps, but feels better after belching and for any motion.Symptoms are worse for milk and if breastfeeding mother eats flatulent/gassy causing foods e.g. Cabbage, onion, beans.

Mag phos 30c – for babies with spasmodic colic, intense cutting, shooting cramping pains in the region of stomach, which are relieved with gentle pressure, rubbing or warmth to the belly and you may see your baby bringing knees up to chest/trying to bend double to get some relief. Worse for milk in general. Bloated, with burning pain, vomiting and belching of gas which gives no relief. 

Nux vomica 30 – for babies with severe bloating, tight belly and arching of the back. Sour belchings and vomiting, constipation and colic in nursing infants from stimulating food taken by mother e.g. coffee, chocolate, sugars. They can be angry, impatient and the pain appears in spasms. This remedy can help detox the effects of medications used during or after the birth. 

Phosphorus 30c – The baby will typically be happy and sociable. Vomiting begins as soon as the milk has warmed in the stomach or can vomit a while after the feed, the baby is better for cold drinks and is quite thirsty. This remedy is known for helping burning pains so there can be a lot of burning in the oesophagus causing pain and distress. Waterbrash/saliva mixed with stomach acid. Belching after feeds. 

Pulsatilla 30c – for clingy babies that may cry a lot, need a lot of comforting, cuddles, gentle rocking. For nursing babies, reflux can be worse if mum eats fats, ice-cream, fruit or pastry. Symptoms can change to keep you guessing, this remedy is often prescribed on the intense clinginess and crying rather than the physical symptoms. 

Silica 30c – for babies who reject milk or vomit up curds after feeding because they can’t digest milk, this may cause diarrhoea. Sour vomiting and may be hungry afterwards. Bloating/distended abdomen. Failure to thrive, arrested development. They feel cold and are better in warm environments. Sweats on the head. 

Kali Carb 30 – for babies with symptoms worse between 2-4am. Milk and warm food aggravates. Burning acidity, bloating, flatulence, sour belching and vomiting of sour mucus. Easy choking when eating. Pain is better for motion, hot drinks and bending forward. 

Our experience of reflux taught me that empowering yourself to learn ways that you can reduce or eradicate your child’s symptoms naturally and improve their resilience to bugs in a very gentle and safe way is the key to having your child’s healthcare in your control and not having to resort to long term drugs that have toxic side effects. Discovering homeopathy was a huge game changer for us and I love sharing my knowledge with clients so they can experience the transformation within their families. 

A professional Homeopath has over 8,000 remedies to choose from for baby reflux so if the ones listed are not providing relief to your baby or if you would like extra support then please get in touch to discuss how to permanently relieve your baby of reflux. I work internationally via Zoom/facetime and in person in CoreWellbeing, Mobberley, Cheshire (near Manchester, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, Macclesfield).
