Colic is a common condition that affects up to 1 in 5 young babies. If your baby suffers from colic you will need to try a number of things to help to relieve their symptoms, and it is important that you seek help and support from friends, family or health professionals too.
Infant colic is ongoing crying without an obvious cause in otherwise healthy babies. It can be very stressful to manage but usually passes by 16 weeks of age.
Babies who suffer from colic will cry inconsolably for several hours at a time, without an obvious reason. They may clench their fists and draw their legs up to their tummies. The crying episodes often occur in the late afternoon or early evening. Sometimes it ends with the passing of a bowel motion or gas, or the baby may simply cry him or herself to sleep.
