Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Colic is abdominal discomfort or pain mostly seen in the evening in bottle-fed babies. A consolable cry which improves with particular positioning of the infant. Most of the time, the cause is not known. Mostly associated with formula feed, improper burping practices. No exact treatment remedies are available. Positioning, proper burping, various colic drops are available in the market which might be helpful.
