FL infantile colic affects normal infants, where the baby cries for three hours a day, at least three days a week, over the span of three weeks. Infantile colic has many theorized contributing factors, such as food allergy or intolerance, excessive gas, and abnormal peristalsis.
Infantile colic begins in the first week or two of life in an otherwise thriving baby. Infantile colic reaches a peak at 6 weeks and ceases by the age of 2-3 months. About 20-30% of infants are colic babies. Symptoms of infantile colic in Altamonte Springs usually emerge at the age when the parents have become stressed and tired from sleep deprivation, and occur at the end of the day.
