Pediatrics/baby cry alot


hi sir,
My baby girl is of 6 months.. She cries alot in the this colic or something else.. We are vry upset to see uncontrolable cry in the evening

Hi. It may be a normal thing for a less than 4 month old baby to cry because of colics,but not so for a six-month old girl. Your doctor should check her for other problems like ear pain, throat infection and so on. However, until then, do not assume it is a colic.

Hope this helps to clarify your thoughts at least.

Best wishes,

Dr. T
