Colic: diagnosis

Diagnosing colic is all about the number three. If you suspect that your baby has colic consider these three factors: how long does she cry each day, how many days a week does she cry and for how many weeks has this crying being occurring?

Does your baby have colic?

Your doctor will diagnose your baby with colic if:

  • she cries for more than 3 hours each day
  • for more than 3 days each week
  • for more than 3 weeks

However, most doctors will diagnose colic before the three week timeline. Also, if you notice any other symptoms do not hesitate to call your doctor as it may be a more serious condition than colic.
