  • Not sure what you're talking about at all honestly. But what I did get is colic and outside and a baby can't get colic from being outside...if that's what you meant.

  • Take him out during the day, not at night. Night air isn't good for little babies and if there is a breeze, keep a hat and socks on him.

  • Colic has NOTHING to do with going outside. My son had colic and his dr said that it is just something that some babies have. Its not like a cold your child can't catch it from another baby who has it or from being outside. The only thing you should worry about is weather she's dressed according to weather and is getting wind in her face as it can take away her breath. But I say take her outside fresh air is good for everyone, including babies.

  • Your baby cannot get colic from being outside. What you do need to worry about is if it's windy he could gulp down air which will make him gassy and fussy - which could lead some people to think he's gotten colic. Just dress him appropriately for the weather and keep him out of direct sunlight and wind.

    I had my boys out all the time at all sorts of places from the day we brought them home from the hospital - and none of them were colicy at all. I'd have gone crazy if I'd been stuck in the house all the time. Go out and show that baby off!

  • A baby doesn't catch colic. They are born with it. My middle one had it. My other two didn't. I have taken all of my babies outside when they are just a couple of days old.
