How Do You Know If Your Baby Has Colic?

When a baby screams for hours at a time, and no amount of rocking, walking or feeding has any effect friends and relatives might mention that dreaded five letter word, Colic. That’s when it’s time to see the pediatrician.

Despite the complete absence of consensus of what constitutes colic, it has become a convenient “umbrella” diagnosis that can be adapted to fit the many infant symptoms that send parents into doctors’ office. However, evolving technology, doctors’ accumulated observations, and new studies have given parents much clearer factors to consider when diagnosing colic.

1. Is the baby’s cry high-pitched, piercing or persistent?
2. Is there a noticeable change in your baby’s crying pattern?
3. Is there a sudden increase in the frequency of crying?
4. Is sleep irregular and interrupted with episodes of crying?
5. Is there a notable change in how the baby cries? Intense? Whimpering?
6. Does the crying usually occur about the same time, which is early evening around seven o’clock?
7. Are the baby’s fists clenched, back arched, or tensed abdominal muscles?

If the answer is “yes” to all or most of the above, it’s time to see the pediatrician. To simplify, if you suspect your child has colic, you can follow the rule of three:

If the baby cries at least three hours a day, three days a week, three weeks in a row, you have a colicky baby.

There are many myths about baby colic, some handed down from generation to generation. Over the years even doctors have had unsubstantiated and contradictory ideas on exactly what colic is and on how to treat it.

However, years of observation and multiple studies conducted around the world, have given us the most defining facts about colic. Let’s eliminate the myths right away. The ten facts below are to help distinguish what is factual about colic.

2. Premature babies are no more likely to have colic than full term babies.
3. There is no appreciable difference in vaginally delivered babies and babies delivered by caesarian section.
4. Unlike normal crying, colicky babies have piercing screams. Their faces can get red, their fists ball up, their backs arch, much like the symptoms of an adult in pain.
5. They start crying during or just after feeding.
6. Extreme crying usually occurs in the early evening.
7. Colic can occur whether the baby is the parent’s first or one of a family of siblings.
