Little evidence that colic home remedies work


Researchers have taken a look at alternative treatments for colic with the hopes of giving parents a proven way to soothe their crying baby.

Experts in the U.K. looked at 15 clinical trials studying complementary medicines for infant colic.

They found some success linked to fennel extract, mixed herbal tea and sugar solutions. However, the studies had major limitations, so researchers say there is not enough data to recommend these treatments.

And for parents who are willing to try anything, they suggest talking to a doctor first.
