Home Remedies for Colic in Children

Colic is an acute fluctuating pain in the abdomen as a result of enteric gas or intestinal obstruction and suffered especially by babies and older children at times. The precise cause is unknown, but one suspected reason is that mothers who smoked during pregnancy or after childbirth have a greater risk of passing colic to their children.

Colic symptoms include abdomen pain, crying, cramping, moaning. In chronic cases, children can show symptoms such as quick change in body temperature, persistent vomiting, change in stools, fatigue and poor weight gain.

Colic can be sorrowful for both the child and the parents, but you need to remain patient because it will end in a matter of weeks or moths. Meanwhile, you can try some natural home remedies to help relieve your child's irritability and discomfort.
