What is Colic?

Colic is defined by excessive periods of inconsolable crying for more than 3 hours per day, more than 3 days per week, and continuing for a period of more than 3 weeks.

This normally occurs within the first 3 weeks of life and can continue up to 3 – 4 months of age.

Colicky babies cry inconsolably, crying louder and more intense than “normal”. They will ball their fists and pull up their legs during their crying spell.The term colic is a description, not a diagnosis.

There may or may not be a cause that your paediatrician will be able to pinpoint for your baby being colicky. Most of the time, your baby will appear perfectly healthy, even though he/she is colicky. There are many opinions as to what exactly causes a colicky baby, which includes reflux, milk/formula intolerance, and swallowing of excess air.
