Infantile colic is one, which exhibits a symptom complex of paroxysmal abdominal pain presumably of intestinal origin associated with severe crying. It usually occurs in infants younger than 3 months of age. The important reason of this symptom is aerophagia. Infantile colic is defined according to wessel's criteria, but symptoms are restricted to crying for more than three hours a day, for more than three days a week, for more than three weeks.
