If you are a parent of a baby suffering from colic, you know how stressful and frustrating it can be. A lot of parents feel helpless because they want to help their child. Colic has been a source of great frustration for not only parents and babies, but doctors as well. Colic is more defined by its symptoms rather than diagnostic findings. The symptoms are in described as uncontrollable, relentless crying for hours at a time. This crying behavior usually lasts for up to three months before the baby seems to grow out of it. Three months of an upset baby could drive any parent slightly crazy! Parents and family members find it difficult to cope and are hopeful for a solution.
Medical doctors have yet to discover the cause or solution for this common problem. There are two common theories for the cause: an immature nervous system or an immature digestive system. The medical solution may not sound promising to parents. Medical recommendations include attempting to sooth the baby and a suggestion to take time for yourself. These solutions seem frustrating for the hundreds of thousands of parents and family members that deal with a colicky baby.
