What is Colic

Baby colic is an episode of crying for more than 3 hours, a day, for more than 3 days a week, for three weeks in an otherwise healthy baby. This time period is , take it from my experience one that makes parents feel helpless. Our first child, now 32 years old had colic for nearly the first two weeks of her life While it does not affect her life as we all know it was a time that me and her daddy will never forget.

The constant crying from colic leaves many parents frustrated, depressed and lead to excessive visits to the doctor or sadly child abuse. As for me and my husband we were blessed with many family members who would help us out. Without them I believe it would have been much worst. As it seems nothing parents do helps the crying stop. In fact the cause of colic is often unknown.

There are may be many reasons for colic:

  • due to gastrointestinal discomfort like intestinal cramping.
  • Diagnosis requires ruling out other possible causes.[

If the child experiences issues with a fever, poor activity or swollen abdomen then it most likely is not colic. Colic does not normally require medication or therapies However, as I stated extra support for parents may be useful. and at times a change in formula or probiotic can be useful

Colic will affect between 10 to 40% of all infants. The most common age are between 6 weeks of age ending prior to 6 months of age. At times but rarely will colic last for the entire first year. Colic affects both girls and boys evenly
