Baby Colic Causes
Family stress and transmission of tension from the mother to the infant have been proposed as causes of colic, although the studies have been conflicting.
The Colic Debate: Final ThoughtsThe most difficult thing about caring for a baby with colic is feeling that nothing will help. That helpless feeling is difficult to fight off when all the attempts to soothe a baby have been unsuccessful.
It is also understandable that if a cause of colic were known, then at least the condition could be addressed and dealt with. Unfortunately, healthcare providers are still searching for its cause.
If you have a baby with colic, the best thing you can do right now is to take a deep breath and roll with it. Your goal right now is to keep your crying baby comfortable and maintain your sanity while doing so. That much is not up for debate.
