Our culture has a deep-seated belief that "babies just cry." Crying is often the last resort of an infant who has been giving signals of increasing intensity—signals that the caretaker has not picked up on and has failed to respond to in an appropriate way. That kind of crying is best dealt with by noticing and responding to those earlier, less intense signals.

Colic, on the other hand, requires a planned approach.
