For some parents it is comforting to hear that
· crying increases in the first weeks of the life, with every child,
no matter how the parents behave;
· the child's nature and disposition determine the extent of the crying
and not so much the parents' attitude. Whether a child suffers from colic
or not, has much more to do with the child's disposition than with
the parents' approach.
· this crying is largely limited to the first three months of life.
