How does a doctor know its colic?

After examining your baby and obtaining a medical history, a doctor may ask about how long and how often your child cries, if you have noticed anything that seems to trigger the crying and what comfort measures are effective, if any. Other tests may be done, but only if the doctor suspects there are other problems present.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
