Crying is normal, it is how your baby communicates. Your baby may be telling you something is wrong, that they are uncomfortable, tired or hungry, or they may just need your attention and love. A lot of the time you will not know why your baby is crying. This can be very hard to cope with but it doesn't mean your baby is being naughty.
Infant colic is a term used for repeated, long-lasting episodes of crying without an obvious cause in babies that are otherwise healthy.
