What could be wrong with a 3-week old baby who wakes up from sleep crying and stretching intermittently and tries to go back to sleep again and how can it be managed?
Colic is when a healthy baby cries or fusses frequently for a prolonged period of time. If your baby regularly cries for more than 3 hours a day, he or she may have colic. Colic can start a few weeks after birth. It is generally worst between 4 and 6 weeks of age.
Most likely, colic is the cause. Follow the doctor's instructions

Good evening ma'am, the stretching could be as a result of colic. Colic is common in babies. Unfortunately, there are no proven treatments that consistently help every baby. Although you can try INFACOL. It usually starts a few weeks after birth and often improves by age 3 months. By ages 4 to 5 months, the majority of babies with colic have improved.
