Comforting techniques often will calm a crying child if the crying isn't caused by pain. These techniques may help comfort a baby with colic, because colic isn't caused by pain. But if the crying doesn't seem normal or your baby seems sick, call your doctor.
First, check to be sure your baby isn't hungry. Very young babies usually don't eat much at one sitting and may
become hungry 1 to 2 hours after a feeding. Feeding your baby might stop the crying.
