  • Facts about Infant Colic
    The cause of colic isn't known, although many people believe that an immature digestive system may be the problem. Indeed, we know that an infant's digestive tract doesn't have all of the enzymes or digestive juices needed for breaking down food.

  • Infant Colic
    Colic can strike any infant between 2 weeks to 6 months of age. It usually disappears on its own accord when the baby is 6 months old. Medical science cannot confirm the causes of colic. Some of the possible suspects are an immature digestive system, stomach spasms, immature nervous system, gas pain, imbalance in hormones, allergy to formula milk, exposure to pollution or cigarette smoke, tension or emotional stress in the baby's environment.
