    Episode-27-Baby Colic

    Episode-27-Baby Colic

    Every prolonged crying in a baby does not mean that the baby has colic. Parents tend to over diagnose and overtreat colic in their babies and infants. A true colic (abdominal discomfort) is a benign condition that resolves when the baby is about three months old. Do not assume that prolonged crying in infants is always colic. Parents should always check and examine their babies when crying so as not to miss life-threatening situations. In this podcast, I discuss sharing information with parents concerned that their infants might have colic. Tips on how to manage colic and when to seek expert medical opinion are also shared.
