In brief: Crying after feeds

Colic typically occurs in healthy infants, starts around 3 weeks of age, happens after feeds and is usually in the evening, when parents tend to be the most tired! babies cry unconsolably, their tummies grumble and appear distended, they may pass gas as they cry, they pull their legs up and clench their fists.
Take turns with your partner so you can get some respite. Always consult your docotr.

In brief: Crying

Crying for greater than 3 hours per day for greater than 3 days per week at 3 weeks of age suggest colic.
These children by definition are otherwise normal, eating well, growing well.
