In brief: Baby stomach ache

Usually an infant manifests abdominal pain by crying and tensing his/her abdomen.
The most common causes are gas or colic, or constipation. So check the stools as this is very treatable. Baby stools should be soft and mushy. Colic should resolve by itsself in 6 to 12 weeks.
