PostHeaderIcon Colic as a common mild sickness in infants

Even though colic is widespread among babies, a new mom can be devastated when it actually happens and a baby screams and cries without stopping. It happens when the child is about 2 or 3 weeks old and reaches its height at 2 months and comes down at about 3 or 4 months when it actually stops.

A child is not in danger because of colic. An episode can occur almost every day, and parents learn to deal with it and handle it well. Medical practitioners and researchers are unable to come to a conclusion as to what actually causes it.

Colic usually occurs after food, and as a result of a serious pain in the stomach, the child cries non-stop for hours. A common attack can last from 1 – 4 hours. The child becomes flushed from the struggle, and it is very hard on the parents to watch their tiny baby be in so much pain.

During the time when there is an episode of colic, the baby’s stomach becomes distended, and the hands and feet become clammy and their fists are clenched. The episodes happen later in the afternoon or in the evening generally after food.

Colic does not act on all babies and scientists tend to feel that it is through genetics – if one or the other parent has had colic, it may be passed on to their children.
