What is baby colic?

Baby colic is described as episodes of crying for 3 or more hours, for 3 or more days a week in an otherwise healthy child. The crying is worse in the evening and the baby isn't easily soothed by rocking, singing or even sometimes nursing. The causes of baby colic can vary from excessive gas or swallowing air due to a poor latch. It can be difficult for parents to figure out what the cause of their baby's colic is and how to treat it.
