There have been no preventive measures established as yet for colic. Parental education before the child is born may help to allay parental anxiety. Proper child-soothing techniques and appropriate handling of the crying child may reduce anxiety in the parents and help them in coping with the crying child.
Parents should be aware that evening colic resolves itself spontaneously, without any treatment by 3 - 4 months. Colicky babies do not progress to become impatient or aggressive children or adults.
