Infant Colic

Infant Colic


“Colic can be defined as long periods of crying and the inability to consol a child despite all the best efforts. Colic is common in newborns during the firsts 3-4 months of life. Colic occurs for many reasons. During the first few months of life, children grow at a very fast rate.”


It is assumed that colic is a sign of digestive pain or distress. However, it is important to consider the source of the pain. Potential sources of pain include gas and pressure, acid reflux, emotional distress, and abdominal cramping.
Since babies cannot report on their symptoms the source of the colic can be difficult to determine. However, a watchful eye and careful report on your baby’s habits and behaviors can lead to a much better understanding of what the cause may be.
