Why is my baby crying?


Do you know that crying is your baby’s only one way of communicating what he wants. Newborns cry between one and three hours a day, but by the time your baby is a few weeks old, you will probably be able to distinguish which cry is a hungry cry, a colicky cry and which one means he needs a comforting cuddle. It’s relieving to know that there are only a handful of things, which actually make newborns cry, so it may be a process of elimination till you work out which it is.

Colic is categorised as persistent & severe crying, occurring mainly late afternoon or evening, lasting at least 3 hours a day and 3 days a week.

78% of Healthcare Professionals agree that the most common cause of colic in young babies is caused by digestive or feeding problems, including swallowing air

Dr Brown’s Natural Flow Baby Bottles, are clinically proven to help reduce wind related colic.

Do remember that if you still feel there is something else bothering your baby, you should consult your health visitor or GP for further advice
