|Colic and the Breastfed Infant (Audio)
About 5% to 28% of infants experience colic within the first month of life. Yet the cause(s) of colic remains nebulous. Wessel's classic article on the topic was published in 1954; over a half-century has passed, and we have yet to find either the cause of colic or an effective cure for it. Unfortunately, many parents are advised to wean their infant from the breast as a means of resolving their babies' distress-and far too many comply with this poor advice. In fact, there is no evidence whatsoever to support weaning as a means of resolving colic, although there is evidence to suggest some good management strategies. The goal of this learning program is to help professionals seek and use evidence-based strategies that support parents of colicky infants while continuing the breastfeeding relationship. Exam-like questions will be included with the program.
