What If Your Baby Has Colic

There's a great herbal remedy for colic. It's fennel. In clinical trials with 125 colicky babies from 2 to 12 weeks old, one half were given fennel and the other group received water. After seven days of treatment, 65% of the fennel group significantly improved after taking fennel-seed-oil called Pediacalm. Only 24% of the placebo group improved. Use 1/4 teaspoons between feedings and up to 2 oz per day. And best of all there are no side effects.

In addition fennel has been shown to relieve indigestion, including pain, nausea, belching, heartburn and colitis.
