What Is Colic?
Colic is a medical term used when babies go through bouts of inconsolable crying when otherwise appear healthy. The crying usually starts from late afternoon/early evening and can continue till late into the night. The causes of colic are still relatively unknown though there are theories into what the causes could possibly be. Colic is just as distressing for the parents/family as it is for the infant.
It is said that stress during pregnancy and/or a traumatic birth may cause feeding and digestive issues such as colic, also babies are born with an immature digestive system and it is thought this also contributes to digestive discomfort in infants. The key factor is; the more relaxed baby is, the more relaxed his/her tummy will be helping to reduce the discomfort. If your baby is crying and inconsolable mainly during the evening and bringing their legs up into their tummy’s, there’s a good chance they are suffering from a bout of colic.
