The study, a meta-analyis of 28 previous studies involving nearly 8,700 infants, aimed to establish the prevalence of colic - a harmless condition that can nevertheless be very distressing for parents and babies - in the first three months of life.
Aggregating the data from multiple studies, he found that infants cried for 2 hours per day during the initial 2 weeks, which became the highest at 2 hours and 15 minutes every day at 6 weeks.
"Babies are already very different in how much they cry in the first weeks of life - there are large but normal variations", Wolke said in a press release.
Bottle or mixed feeding was associated with reduced duration of colic from three to four weeks of age onward.
Babies cry more in Britain, Canada and Italy, than the rest of the world - according to new research by the University of Warwick.
He added that the chart of "normal" fussing and crying amounts in babies will also help health professionals reassure parents on whether their infant is crying within a normal expected range or require more evaluation.
British babies cry more than any others in the world, according to new research. Writing in the Journal of Pediatrics, psychologists at the University of Warwick analyzed 28 previous studies of some 8,700 infants to measure colic-a harmless, if nerve-jangling, condition-by gauging crying times during the first 12 weeks.
Professor Dieter Wolke analysed studies involving 8,700 infants across countries including Germany, Denmark, Japan, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK.
They formulated the world's first universal charts for the normal amount of crying in babies during the first three months.
In contrast just 5.5 per cent of Danish babies cry for more than three hours a day, and only 6.7 per cent of German babies.
The highest levels of colic - defined as a baby crying more than three hours a day for at least three days a week - were found in the United Kingdom (28 per cent of infants at 1-2 weeks), Canada (34.1 per cent at 3-4 weeks) and Italy (20.9 per cent at 8-9 weeks).
That said, some infants cry for as little as 30 minutes while others cry for more than five hours during the course of a day. Kids from Japan, Germany, and Denmark tend to cry the least. And 34.1% of babies in Canada had colic at 3 to 4 weeks, while the average percentage was 18.4%.
