5 Colic Myths Debunked



There are a lot of misconceptions around colic: what it is, why babies get it, and how it will affect them long-term. Dr. Deena, Pediatrician and NUK Colic Expert, shares 5 myths about colic, such as “colicky babies become difficult children” or “only formula-fed babies get colic.” Both conceptions are false. Colic is merely a period in your child’s life and is not an indicator of how they will behave as a toddler, older child, or teenager. Likewise, both formula-fed and breast-fed babies can have colic! There is no indication that the method of feeding affects whether a child displays symptoms of colic. Watch the video to learn 3 other myths and more truths about colic.
