Is it true that boy babies are more likely to be colicky than girl babies?

No. Colic is equally common among baby boys and baby girls. Colic is a term used to describe uncontrollable crying in a healthy baby. Colic may start when your baby is between two weeks and four weeks old, but should be over by the time he's between three months and four months old. It can be really hard to cope with colic. Your baby can be happy one minute, only to start crying inconsolably the next. The crying bouts often strike in the late afternoon and evening, just when you and your spouse may be most tired. Sometimes, your baby will keep on crying, however you try to soothe him. though it can be distressing to spend every evening with your upset baby, rest assured that he isn't upset because you're doing anything wrong. Experts think that excessive crying may just be part of a baby's normal development. However, despite decades of research, we still don't know why some babies cry more than others.
