Treat Infant Colic by Changing Mom's Diet


Treat Infant Colic by Changing Mom's Diet

Colic, characterized by prolonged periods of inconsolable crying, affects up to 40 percent of young infants. The condition is often dismissed as trivial by the medical profession, but should be treated seriously. It can contribute to postpartum depression, interfere with breastfeeding, and even lead to the death of the infant at the hands of a parent from shaken baby syndrome.They’re not just crybabies.
