  Colic
 
Baby colic is a medical condition in which an otherwise healthy baby cries incessantly without any apparent reason (such as hunger or loneliness).

A common rule of thumb is to consider a baby "colicky" if it cries intensely more than three days a week, for more than three hours, for more than three weeks in a month.
