In brief: Excessive crying
Colic is defined as excessive crying in an otherwise healthy infant.
Crying is one of the infant's ways of communicating, so they often cry when they are hungry, tired or need changing. Colic is excessive crying- crying for more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week for at least 3 weeks. There is no good treatment for colic, but the good news is, it usually goes away on it's own by 3 months.
