What is it?
If your baby cries most evenings for two or three hours, chances are you’re dealing with colic. Other symptoms that identify it include stiffness in the body and pulling the knees up. This usually starts when the baby is about three weeks old, and will eventually disappear at about three to four months in most cases.What to do
Get the doctor to diagnose colic and rule out any other causes. Be prepared to share this challenge, because a colicky baby is stressful for everyone in the household. Do whatever makes the baby relax, for example a drive in the car, being patted gently on the back or being taken to a quiet space for example. Some mothers swear by over-the-counter colic remedies.
