When your newborn is constantly upset, it’s not only frustrating—it breaks your heart! When you’ve helped in all the ways you can think of, it’s time to find the reason for the racket. Pediatricians say that colic and gas are two of the most common causes of fuss in new babies. Here’s how to tell which kind of trouble is making your baby’s tiny tummy too tender, and how to get quick relief.
It could be colic if he:
- Cries for no apparent reason
- Cries around the same time every day
- Cries for at least 3 hours a day, for at least 3 days a week, for at least 3 weeks
- Exhibits signs of gas (see below)
