Canadian Babies Cry More Than Infants In Other Countries

The highest levels of colic - defined as a baby crying more than three hours a day for at least three days a week - were found in the United Kingdom, then Canada and Italy.

In contrast just 5.5 per cent of Danish babies cry for more than three hours a day, and only 6.7 per cent of German babies.

The study uncovered that on average, in the first two weeks of life, babies cry for about two hours every day.

Researchers at the University of Warwick in England found babies cry more in Britain, Canada, Italy and the Netherlands than in any other countries in the world.

But anyone who has listened to their new baby cry (and cry and cry and cry) will likely appreciate the motivation: To create new universal guidelines for parents and health professionals to assess normal and excessive levels of crying.

The study also said some infants could cry as little as 30 minutes, while others cry up to five hours, in one day.

Wolke says one important thing for parents to note is that often babies cry for reasons that no parent can understand.

Researchers created a universal scale tracking which countries' babies cried the longest and loudest; they reviewed 28 past studies that observed the prevalence of colic in almost 8,700 infants.

He found that babies cry most in Canada, the UK, Italy and Netherlands.

Researchers analysed data on nearly 8,700 infants taking part in previous studies to find out how upset babies in different countries get in their first 12 weeks. It can last for more than three hours a day, for more than three days a week or for more than three weeks in a month.

'Another factor may be differences in population genetics, as in some countries people tend to be more introverted and calmer than in others.

Colic has always been defined as infant crying that lasts longer than three hours a day for at least three days a week.

He added that the chart of "normal" fussing and crying amounts in babies will also help health professionals reassure parents on whether their infant is crying within a normal expected range or require more evaluation.

An analysis of studies involving nearly 8,700 babies, Professor Dieter Wolke calculated the average of how long babies fuss and cry per 24 hours across different cultures in their first twelve weeks. And 34.1% of babies in Canada had colic at 3 to 4 weeks, while the average percentage was 18.4%.
