Infant colic is characterised by episodes of inconsolable crying in a baby, for which no apparent reason can be found, usually occuring for more than three hours at a time, three days per week and for three weeks out of a month.
Having to deal with a baby that suffers from colic also takes a toll on the caregivers and family, as it can be emotionally distressing not to be able to find the reason for the crying or being able to console the baby and stop the crying.
