What are the symptoms of colic?

Crying...: Uncontrollably and repeatedly, often at the same time of day, and for no apparent reason. It can look like there's a lot of pain, even if there isn't. If you have found a reason for it, it's not called colic any more. When you find the reason, you deal with the reason; then the crying stops.

What are the best tips for managing and treating colic?

Stressful Time: This is a very stressful time for your family. Colicky babies demand constant attention. You are sleep deprived already, then on top of that, you have the constant needs of this child. Walking in a sling is super helpful. Consider "baby wearing" as much as possible, not just you but dad and other family members. Never shake the baby, you can always set her down and let her cry, take a break!

Is there a cure for colic?

No: Colic, once other things like gerd, or mil k protein intolerance have been ruled out, occurs between 3 weeks of age to generally about 3 months of age. If it lasts longer than that, then it probably isn't colic. Colic is an immature neurological system problem. Rhythmic soothing like rocking your baby is helpful.

If a baby is colic do they have a cough?

If a baby is colic do they have a cough?

Possible: When children have gas pains, they cry a lot and swallow more air. That doesn't cause cough. If they spit up a lot, they can inhale some of the milk from the stomach and this can cause cough. The best treatment is to do extra burping (at least in the middle and the end of a feeding, if not more). If the child is hard to burp, try mylicon drops to make burping better and decrease swallowed air.

Colic: Colic is a word used for a fussy baby, however the interpretation of fussiness is different for each individual. By definition it is a screaming crying baby for at least six hours a day. There are certainly multiple causes including the things mom may be eating. But gerd can cause fussiness and multiple other things that potentially can be corrected. Talk with your pediatrician.
