This is a poorly understood behavior found if babies usually around 2 weeks to about 4 months. Babies tend to be very fussy usually at clearly defined times. Most often will be in early evening. There is usually a lot of crying and parents will report that their babies are inconsolable. Colic is often associated with gas pains and changing formulas or trying OTC mylicon (gas) drops does occasionally help. Other comforting measures like the swing, singing to your babies, a sound machine or driving in the car will also help to soothe some babies.

This can be very frustrating for some families. Please call the office if you feel you baby is excessively fussy.
