    Sometimes incessant crying has nothing to do with digestive issues and none of the traditional remedies work. If a child has continual colic, like my child did for 2 solid years, there is often another culprit. My son has sensory integration disorders and needed occupational therapy. We didn’t find this out until much later, 3rd grade to be specific, but his life and ours got much better then. The sad truth is that if my pediatrician had taken me seriously and gotten him this help before age 3 he would have had a great shot at growing up symptom free. As it is he’s okay but will be dealing with this for his whole life.
