Colic can lead to prolonged and extreme crying in a healthy baby. It can be especially disappointing for guardians because their child’s discomfort happens for no obvious reason and no other support appears to bring any alleviation. These episodes frequently happen at night, when parents themselves are also tired.
Episodes of colic occur when a baby is around one month, and decrease at 3 to 4 months of age. Incessant crying will resolve with time.
You can undertake steps to decrease the seriousness and length of colic episodes, reduce your own stress, and bolster trust in your parent-child connection.
