Persistent crying, sometimes referred to as colic is highly subjective and difficult to diagnose as it can include single and multiple symptoms like gastrointestinal or neurologic stress as causes. It serves as a common reason that parents seek medical care in the early months and can be characterized by uncontrolled crying that can last up to 3 hours/day, at least 3 days/week, in this pattern for 3 weeks (Core Curriculum, 2019).
