Persistent cry in the young infant is a very frequent problem and represents an area where opinions and practice among health professionals vary significantly. An interdisciplinary group of health professionals made an attempt to provide practice guidelines based on consensus and on availabale evidence. The guidelines include collection of clinical history, physical examination, diagnostic approach, advice and counselling. The various theories on etiology of infantile colics are discussed and their practical implication discussed. Particular attention was paid to maintain and support breastfeeding.
