Colic in babies is something of a mystery. No-one is quite sure of what it is, yet we all know that it’s unpleasant. If you’ve got an otherwise healthy baby that suddenly and routinely seems to suffer from intense pain or discomfort without any obvious cause, it could be colic. While it’s not fully understood, we do know that it affects the baby’s stomach. As such, connections have been made between the foods that the mother eats (if breastfeeding) and the presence of colic.
