CA infantile colic affects normal infants, where the baby cries for three hours a day, at least three days a week, over the span of three weeks. There are many theories as to the cause of infantile colic. They range from food allergy/intolerance to abnormal peristalsis or excessive gas.
Infantile colic begins in the first week or two of life in an otherwise thriving baby. Infantile colic reaches a peak at 6 weeks and ceases by the age of 2-3 months. Actually, 20-30% of newborns have infantile colic in Oakland. It is normal for the baby to start showing signs of infantile colic at the end of the day and at around the age when sleep deprivation has really hit the parents. It is no wonder that with colic babies, parents can become frustrated, discouraged, and depressed.
