When your baby seems perfectly healthy, has no obvious signs of distress and yet cries continually, they may be suffering from colic. Colic is prolonged bouts of excessive, frequent crying for no apparent reason, although some abdominal discomfort is thought to accompany it due to the way many babies draw their knees up when they cry which would indicate trapped wind. These episodes can be very distressing for both baby and parent, and can last for several weeks.

For the first few weeks, feeding your baby can be a difficult job. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all guide to child nutrition for new parents. Your baby's optimal newborn feeding amount can vary depending on his or her weight, appetite and age. It also depends on whether you're nursing or using formula milk.
If you're uncertain about how much to feed your baby, talk to your doctor or a lactation consultant and use these general guidelines as a starting point.
