Tobacco Use Aggravates Colic

 

 

 An infant in the house with colic? A smoker in the house? The two may be related.

According to scientists second hand smoke causes infants to have a higher incidence of colic than in households without smokers.

The smoke causes a hormone called motilin to increase which raises the probability of an infant to suffer from colic.

Chamomile is a natural soothing herb which can help relieve a baby of colic without drugs.
