f. Colic


Colic is not an illness. A colicky baby cries a lot more than other babies. Nothing seems to comfort or stop them from crying. A colicky baby can be frustrating for parents. If you have a colicky baby, do not blame yourself because you are not responsible.

A baby with colic

  • cries as if in pain after a feeding.
  • pulls his knees up to his chest.
  • may pass gas or vomit.
  • cries for long periods no matter what you do.
