Novalac Anti-Colic 800g



Colic is very common and usually appears when babies are around 2–4 weeks old.

Colic is a term used to describe excessive, uncontrollable crying or fussing in babies who are otherwise healthy and well fed.

Babies with colic may cry inconsolably for hours, usually in the late afternoon and evening. At other times they may be restless, cranky, and difficult to settle. A baby with colic may seem to be uncomfortable or have wind pain, drawing their legs up and clenching their fists.

What causes colic?

It’s not known exactly what causes colic, but some possible factors are:

  • An immature digestive system
  • Excess gas or “wind”
  • Too much or too little milk, or milk given the wrong way
  • Oversensitivity to light, noise and other stimuli
  • The good news is colic tends to go away on its own by the time a baby is around 4 months old.
What are the symptoms of colic in babies?

It’s completely normal for babies to cry, and most babies will cry for a few hours every day. But if your baby constantly cries and fusses for no apparent reason, or they seem to have colicky abdominal pain, they may be suffering from colic.
