"After feeding, my 2-month-old baby cries all the time, is he still hungry?" Our specialist, Professor Patrick Tounian, Head of Nutrition and Gastroenterology at Trousseau Hospital in Paris, answers Rose's question.

The answer of Pr Patrick Tounian, head of the nutrition and gastroenterology department at Trousseau Hospital (Paris) *

  • In the first months of life, the recurrent crying of the infant is disconcerting for the parents, who do not know how to interpret them and do not know what to do to relieve them.
  • Crying in an infant is not necessarily a sign of unmet hunger. Especially when these tears arrive at the end of the feeding. A baby who can not get enough to eat gets upset during the feed, because he can not catch the breast, or he is not satisfied with the flow of milk.
  • Recurrent crying at the end of the feed may be a fairly common phenomenon known as infant colic. It is a phenomenon circumscribed in time that starts at the end of the 1st week of life and ends around 4 months.
  • For reasons that are not always explained, some babies start crying very often. Several tracks are mentioned. These tears could be linked, when they occur at the end of the day at the setting of the nycthemeral rhythm (sleep-wake alternation).
  • Recurrent tears should not be worrying, as long as they are well differentiated from loud, sharp and unusual crying, which may be a symptom of a disturbing problem, and require prompt consultation. Do not hesitate to talk to the pediatrician who will check that these tears have no pathological origin.
