What is colic?

baby cry

When your baby cries excessively or is fussy and there is no obvious cause, it may be colic. All babies cry, but your baby may have colic if they cry for more than 3 hours a day, at least 3 times a week, for over 3 weeks. Colic usually starts in the first few weeks of life and babies may cry more often in the evening and at night. Colic is difficult, but there are things you can do to help soothe your baby.
If you are worried about your baby's crying, talk to your doctor.
