It is known.

No one likes to hear a baby cry for more than three hours nonstop. Especially not the mother. While crying is a natural way for babies to communicate their needs, it is also an indicator that there’s something wrong with your little. Babies easily gulp down air with milk during breastfeeding and the resulting wind is so so painful for them and here are four signs that your baby has colic and isn’t just a Drama Queen.

1.The Crying

2. The time of crying

If you notice that your baby cries a lot after feeding, then they just might have colic. This must be very uncomfortable for your baby so don’t try and feed them again to shut them up and give both of you some peace.

3. It’s hard to soothe

Most infant cries are really easy to soothe. If your baby just needs to be held or has a wet nappy, the crying ceases after a minute, but colic didn’t come to play, you and your baby will be over each other after the first hour of crying.
