We included 62 761 live-born singletons with complete information on birth weight, gestational age, and crying symptoms recorded at six months of age. Infantile colic was defined according to Wessel's modified criteria:crying for more than three hours per day for more than three days per week.ResultsA total of 2605 (4.2 {\%}) infants were born preterm, 54 441 (86.7{\%}) at term, and 5715 (9.1{\%}) post-term. A total of 4353 (7.7{\%}) infants fulfilled Wessel's modified criteria. The risk for infantile colic increased with lower gestational age and birth weight after adjustment for several possible confounders. The highest risk (odds ratio [95 {\%} confidenceinterval]) was observed for infants born before 32 complete gestational weeks (1.5 [1.0-2.2; p<0.05], reference: 40 gestational weeks) or with birth weight less than 2000 grams (1.7 [1.3-2.2], reference: 3500 - 3999 grams). Small for gestational age infants (birth weight below 10thpercentile) had higher risk for infantile colic in all gestational ages.This was statistically significant for infants born between 37-41 complete gestational weeks (1.2 [1.1-1.3]).ConclusionsWe found an association between infantile colic, and gestational age and birth weight in a large cohort study.
