Colic is a condition best described as intermittent crying by the babies who are otherwise healthy. Colic affects babies younger than 3 weeks old and usually resolves on its own within months, say by the time the baby is 6 months old. Although the exact reason for colic in babies is still unknown, it is assumed that it is caused when the babies abdominal cavity has some trapped air in it. Symptoms associated with colic are crying, cramping, pain, finicky behavior, vomiting, temperature rise, fatigue, poor weight gain and change in stools. Colic can be stressing for parents as well and may even result in postpartum depression. Here are some of the best home remedies that help relieve colic in babies.
