Get answers to your child's growth, nutrition, and feeding behavior questions.
Your baby is likely to have a fussy period, regardless of any type of prevention.
However, good feeding techniques and identification of triggers can be helpful. If you are breastfeeding, talking to a lactation consultant can be helpful.
Learn what comforts your baby, before colic may develop. Knowing what calms your baby can help stop the fussy period from becoming so intense.
