Overview

Although colic is prevalent among babies, when it actually happens and a baby screams and cries without stopping, a new mom can be devastated. It occurs when the infant is about 2 or 3 weeks old and reaches its height at 2 months and comes down at about 3 or 4 months when it actually stops. The child is not in danger because of colic, but an episode can occur almost every day, and parents learn to deal with it and handle it well. Doctors and researchers are unable to come to a conclusion as to what actually causes it. Colic usually occurs after food, and as a result of a severe pain in the stomach, the child cries non-stop for hours. A typical attack can last from 1 – 4 hours. The baby becomes flushed from the exertion, and it is extremely hard on the parents to watch their tiny infant suffer so much. While there is an episode of colic, the baby’s stomach becomes distended, and the hands and feet become clammy and their fists are clenched. The episodes happen later in the afternoon or in the evening usually after food. Colic does not affect all babies and researchers tend to feel that it is through genetics – if either or both parents has had colic, it may pass on to their children.
