WHEN IT’S NOT COLIC

Your Baby & Toddler - - Baby Files: Newborn -

There are three symp­toms that are not re­lated to colic and are im­por­tant to know:

FEVER: This is not as­so­ci­ated with colic and any sus­tained tem­per­a­ture of 38-40° C needs im­me­di­ate at­ten­tion.

DI­AR­RHOEA: Al­though this is a tummy symp­tom it is not linked to colic.

CO­PI­OUS VOM­IT­ING/WEIGHT LOSS: This can be se­ri­ous and should be at­tended to im­me­di­ately.
