Baby & Child General Health

About 20 per cent of newborn babies develop Colic. It usually begins within an infant's first few weeks and tends to peak at about eight to twelve weeks. Colic normally stops when the child is three to four months old. The exact cause is unknown. Possibilities may be trapped wind that is swallowed during feeding or crying or the fact that baby's digestive system is not yet fully developed.

Symptoms of Colic usually include crying and fussing intensely for no obvious reason; pulling their legs up to their tummy as if in pain; clenching their fists tightly and arching their backs.

One of the most common causes of discomfort and distress in young babies and toddlers is Teething. On average, babies cut their first tooth at around six to seven months of age, although this varies.

Common signs of Teething include them being grizzly, irritable and clingy; dribbling and red or flushed cheeks; chewing on anything that they can get their hands on and red and swollen gums.
