All About Colic Infants

day. Colic infants start suffering due to the symptoms from the third
or fourth week since its birth and continue to suffer till the third
to fourth month usually and up to six months to one year in rarely.
Colic infants suffering due to the symptoms do stay healthy and feed
well during this period.
The temperament of the colic infants is considered to be the other major cause of symptoms, as this makes the baby highly sensitive to the environment and so the baby reacts to normal stimulation or changes to the environment by crying. Some problems in the immature digestive system of the colic infants create abdominal pain which results in increased discomfort to the infant. Some colic infants may be allergic to cows milk, as a protein in the milk of cows is suspected to cause the symptoms.
