As a new parent you sometimes feel helpless when your baby is crying incessantly, it can be quite unsettling and heart-breaking. Sometimes all your attempts to soothe your baby go in vain. But do you know why is your baby crying? Is your baby crying because of colic? A colicky baby can be normal during the day but might end up crying excessively every evening. About every 1 in 5 babies may have suffered from colic at some point, usually seen in babies from 2 to4 weeks after birth.
What Are Colic Signs & Symptoms in Infants?
When your baby cries inconsolably, while otherwise healthy, it is called colic (also known as infantile colic). Here’s how your doctor will diagnose colic-
- Your baby is less than five months of age
- He cries for three hours or more at a stretch
- The crying occurs at least three days of the week
- The crying bouts last for at least three weeks
What Causes Colicky Pain in My Infant?
Your colicky baby might start crying suddenly. There have been numerous beliefs that the crying could be related to abdominal pain caused by trapped gas or overfeeding. One popular reason is that a new-born’s digestive system is not well developed and it cannot easily breakdown the proteins in breast milk or formula, causing painful gas. Some experts also believe that bouts of crying could be due to the urge to let off steam for sensitive babies. Since the episodes of crying are usually in the evenings, babies may get over-stimulated due to the sounds, lights or sensations around them.
