What is the main cause of colic?

Colic is an attack of crying and what appears to be abdominal pain in young infancy. It is a common condition and is estimated to affect up to 1 in 5 infants during their first few months. If an infant has repeated episodes of inconsolable crying but appears to be healthy and well, they may have colic.

Do all babies get colic?

My baby cries all the time. Could it be colic? Colic is uncontrollable crying in an otherwise healthy baby. Your baby is considered colicky if he's younger than 5 months old and cries for more than three hours in a row on three or more days a week for at least three weeks (phew!).
