Infantile Colic

Infantile colic is when your baby doesn’t have a gastrointestinal condition and there’s no sign of infection or injury but they continue to cry regularly.

Infantile colic is diagnosed when your baby doesn’t have a gastrointestinal condition and there’s no sign of infection or injury. Since we’ve ruled out all other possibilities, this looks like a case of infantile colic.

This is where your baby is crying even though he’s not unwell. Specifically, colic is defined as episodes of crying for more than three hours a day for three days a week for three weeks. So the good news is your baby is completely healthy. The important thing now is that you look after your own health and each other. You can try different settling techniques to manage the crying but there’s no specific way that colic should be treated.

Try to squeeze in as much sleep as possible and don’t be afraid to ask for help. In a few months, your baby should outgrow infantile colic on his own.
