Your infant cries for hours and resists all your efforts of pacification.
You check nappy for soiling, you try to feed him/her, you inspect for any uncomfortable clothing/bedding, you try to divert the attention, you sing the favourite lullaby, but nothing seems to work!
Because it is none of the above that is making your little one cranky.
And in such cases when you have ruled out all other probabilities of discomfort or pain, the crying is most likely because of COLIC.
WebMD says, colic is a condition and a term applied to any healthy, well-fed infant
who cries –
- more than 3 hours a day
- more than 3 days a week
- for more than 3 weeks
Simply put, colic is excessive, frequent and uncontrollable crying in an otherwise healthy baby.
Colic is likely to start as early as 2 weeks of age. It usually goes away on its own by 3 or 4 months.
What Causes Colic?
Like several other conditions, colic’s exact cause is not known. And hence, there’s not a specific way to help it. Some theories include:
- A growing digestive system with muscles that often spasm
- Gas formation
- Surging hormones that cause stomach pain or a fussy mood
- Oversensitivity/overstimulation by light, noise, etc.
- A still-developing nervous system of the infant
Apart from these, one of the main and significant causes of colic could be – not having enough good bacteria in the digestive system.
Now, we may not be able to do much in most of the above-mentioned reasons for colic, but we can surely do something about not having enough good bacteria part.
