In brief: 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.

In brief: Usually

I believe that infantile colic has a cause, which if identified can be corrected.
Examples are formula intolerences, hidden acid reflux and mechanical feeding problems.99% of coliky behavior is correctable.
