may actually worsen the condition...

The causes of colic are unknown. Some researchers have suggested that indigestion, or wind, may play a role. Others claim that babies who have colic may, for a few weeks while their gut is maturing, be sensitive to certain substances found in breast, or formula, milk, such as lactose (a natural sugar), or molecules found in cows' milk. It is thought that these substances may be passed on to the baby through breast feeding. However, there is little evidence to support these theories.

Lactose intolerance and milk allergies are rare conditions that can cause symptoms similar to those of colic.

An otherwise healthy baby who cries excessively in the first four months of life is usually thought to have colic. About 20% of babies get colic, and it affects boys and girls equally. It usually appears when the baby is between 2-4 weeks old, and disappears when they are about four months of age.

If you suspect that your baby is unwell, or if you are worried that their symptoms may be something other than colic, it is important to see your GP to rule out other possible causes of distress.
