Many young babies have a period during the day when they are unsettled. Although they’re crying with discomfort, they don’t appear to be hungry. This is often referred to as colic.
- Colic occurs commonly in the late afternoon and evening, and babies usually grow out of it at three to four months.
- The causes of colic are unknown and therefore it can be difficult to treat.
- Soothing, comforting or massaging your baby can help.
- Certain bottles, soothers and pacifiers are specifically designed to soothe colic symptoms
