What Is Colic?
Do you have a new infant at home? Are you experiencing intense lasting bouts of continuous high pitched crying, typically in the evening or night hours, and your pediatrician has not expressed serious concern? This may be a sign of something other than just a fussy newborn. When these symptoms present, many infants are diagnosed with what is called “Colic.” Colic is one of the most common and disconcerting causes for visiting a pediatrician during the first few months of a baby’s life.
You may also be wondering, isn’t crying typical in newborns 0-5 months? Yes, but a colicky baby will cry much more often. According to medical experts at Seattle Children’s Hospital, if your baby is crying for over four hours a day for more than half the week, they may have colic. Other signs may include:
- A lot of crying once or twice per day
- Usually consolable when held and comforted
- Acts normal (happy, contented) between bouts of crying
- The baby is getting enough to eat and is not hungry
- The baby is not sick
According to a 2016 study on infant colic, there is no single cause of infant colic. One possible cause however, may be due to an imbalance of the intestinal flora or microbiota. The intestinal microbiota is the community of bacteria that lives in our intestines. If there is an imbalance during the first months of life, this can trigger infant colic, which is linked to intestinal inflammation and gas production.
