Being a parent of a child with colic can pose great hardship and risk of illness for the whole family. The purpose of this study was to describe parents' experiences of having a baby with colic. The literature study analyzed eight qualitative studies using qualitative content analysis with a manifest approach. This resulted in four categories: the first time with the child was not as expected, to be afraid of losing control and harming the child, trying to cope with being a parent, the need of support and relief during the child's colic period. The inconsolable child makes the parents feel inadequate in their parental role, the development of the parental potential becomes more difficult. Parents also experience that connecting to the child became more difficult. The child may be at risk of ill-treatment due to the parents' loss of control. From the knowledge generated by this study, the nurse can work on strengthening the parents by giving them knowledge, listen to them empathically and make sure that the parents have the necessary support and relief.Keywords: experience, colic, literature, parents, qualitative content analysis, nursing.
