Baby is crying for hours

Crying baby suffering from colic

Why is my baby crying for hours?

    There are many reasons a baby may cry inconsolably. Possible reasons may include:
  • Food allergy, e.g. Cows’ Milk Allergy (CMA)
  • Suffering from colic
  • Hungry, tired, bored or uncomfortable

    Could it be Cows’ Milk Allergy?

    Inconsolable crying is a common symptom for babies with CMA and is very common in babies under three months. Babies with CMA usually experience more than just one symptom and these symptoms can be very different from one another.
    If you think that your baby is crying inconsolably, it may be CMA. You may have even noticed other symptoms (besides inconsolable crying), which may affect other parts of your baby’s body.
