Mum’s diet could hold key to colic

Mother's diet could influence infant colic
A low FODMAP diet for breastfeeding mums might hold the key to reducing colic in her infant, a new study has found.

The study published today in the journal, Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, suggests that a nutritious low FODMAP diet (that removes ‘windy’ foods) for nursing mothers could significantly reduce fussiness and crying in the first nine weeks of her newborn’s life.

The study involved 20 breastfeeding mothers with babies under nine weeks old with and without colic.
