Have you been told your baby has colic?
Or have you googled “My baby won’t stop crying” and the search comes back as colic? Or Reflux? You are not alone.
Colic is a term that is regularly used to describe unsettled babies who excessively cry for at least 3 hours per day, for at least 3 days a week, over a 3 week period.
Reflux is stomach acid bouncing up out of the stomach. It can be quite uncomfortable and some babies experience severe pain
But there is a lot of confusion around what colic and reflux actually are, what causes it, what the symptoms are, and what you can do.
If you are reading this then your baby is probably suffering from reflux or colic or is very unsettled and you don’t know why.
One thing is for sure, that having a baby with colic or reflux is distressing for a baby and hard for parents. Even if you know what colic or reflux is before you have your baby or have some experience of friends who have babies who have suffered from it, nothing can quite prepare you for what it feels like to have a colicky baby and the sense of helplessness, frustration, and anxiety it can induce.
