Infantile colic, the cause of 10–20% of all early paediatrician visits, can lead to parental exhaustion and stress. [...] Key Method Six databases were searched from 1960, and 24 studies selected for inclusion. In breastfed infants, evidence suggests that a hypoallergenic maternal diet may be beneficial for reducing symptoms of colic. In formula-fed infants, colic may improve after changing from a standard cow’s milk formula to either a hydrolysed protein formula or a soy-based formula. Fibre-supplemented…Expand
Dietary modifications for infantile colic.
TLDR
The primary outcome was duration of crying, and secondary outcomes were response to intervention, frequency of crying episodes, parental/family quality of life, infant sleep duration, parental satisfaction and adverse effects. Expand
Infantile colic: from basics to treatment
TLDR
The current review aims to delineate the Rome IV criteria definition, which is the latest published diagnostic criteria, and gastrointestinal, neurogenic, microbial and psychosocial factors that might contribute to the pathophysiology of infant colic. Expand
Infantile Colic - A Challenge to Parenthood
TLDR
Benign and self-limiting nature of this condition should be emphasized to the parents and herbal preparation, sucrose solution has limited use in colicky babies due adverse side effects, lack of standardization of dosage, formulation and poor quality of evidence. Expand
Infant colic: mechanisms and management
TLDR
The definitional entanglement with the Rome IV criteria is delineated as the leading, most recent diagnostic criteria for infant colic, and the evidence for gastrointestinal, psychosocial, microbial and neurogenic factors in the pathogenesis of the condition is explored. Expand
Management of infantile colic
TLDR
Whether these management options are supported by the literature and if there are any novel treatment options for infantile colic is assessed. Expand
Screening for infantile colic and parents experiences of simethicone and probiotics: a quantitative, descriptive sub-study.
TLDR
Why infants whose parents sought help for colic, where not included in two colic trials are presented and the use and perceived effect of simethicone and probiotics amongst those infants who were included are described. Expand
Infant Colic—What works: A Systematic Review of Interventions for Breast-fed Infants
Objectives: To determine the strength of evidence for commonly used interventions for colic in breast-fed and mixed-fed infants younger than 6 months. Methods: Searches of PubMed, CINAHL, Embase,Expand
Infantile Colic: Recognition and Treatment.
TLDR
Treatment options for breastfed infants include the probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri and reducing maternal dietary allergen intake and reducing mothers' smoking or nicotine replacement therapy, and switching to a hydrolyzed formula is an option for formula-fed infants. Expand
Effective Interventions of Mothers in Colicky and Non-colicky Infants
TLDR
In the non-colic group, mothers used more behavioral and nutritional interventions while in the colic group both herbal and chemical drugs were used more. Expand
Cow's-Milk Allergy and Lactose Malabsorption in Infants With Colic
TLDR
Although CMA appears to be increased in infants with persistent crying, the majority of infants with colic do not appear to have underlying food allergies, and the clinical management of colic is often empirical rather than evidence based. Expand

Infantile colic: practicalities of management, including dietary aspects.
TLDR
Certain behavioural interventions, such as reassurance, making changes to the parents' responsiveness to the infant, using motion/sound to calm the infant and reducing stimuli to the infants have also been shown to be effective treatments for infantile colic. Expand

TLDR
The possible role of cows milk intolerance in the aetiology of infant colic was evaluated in 19 babies presenting to their health visitor or general practitioner in one town, and in 13 out of 19 babies (68%) the symptoms of infant Colic resolved almost completely with dietary change. Expand
Evaluation of the effect of a fiber-enriched formula on infant colic.
Because infants with colic appear to have abdominal pain similar to that of adults with irritable bowel syndrome, who may benefit from the addition of fiber to their diet, we tested whether fiberExpand
Treatment of infant colic with amino acid‐based infant formula: a preliminary study
TLDR
After colic symptoms improved, infants were challenged with oral doses of bovine IgG at a 1 mg/ml concentration in order to assess its potential role in colic, suggesting that this protein may be etiologically important. Expand
A low allergen diet is a significant intervention in infantile colic: results of a community-based study.
TLDR
The results suggest a period of dietary modification with a low allergen diet and appropriate nutritional support should be considered in healthy infants with colic. Expand
Dietary modifications versus dicyclomine hydrochloride in the treatment of severe infantile colics
This study examined 120 infants, aged 3–12 weeks, with severe colics and compared the results of a specific hypoallergenic diet (group A) with those of pharmacological treatment (group B).Expand
Focus on infantile colic
TLDR
It is probable that infants with colic require a graded strategy, and the medical hypotheses include food hypersensitivity or allergy, immaturity of gut function and dysmotility and the behavioural hypotheses include inadequate maternal–infant interaction, anxiety in the mother and difficult infant temperament. Expand
Effectiveness of treatments for infantile colic: systematic review
TLDR
Infantile colic should preferably be treated by advising carers to reduce stimulation and with a one week trial of a hypoallergenic formula milk, and Anticholinergic drugs are not recommended because of their serious side effects. Expand
Reduction of crying episodes owing to infantile colic: a randomized controlled study on the efficacy of a new infant formula
TLDR
The use of a partially hydrolysed formula supplemented with fructo- and galacto-OS induces a reduction of crying episodes in infants with colic after 7 and 14 days when compared with a standard formula and simethicone. Expand
Association between infantile colic and carbohydrate malabsorption from fruit juices in infancy.
TLDR
IC was associated with carbohydrate malabsorption from fruit juices containing sorbitol and a high fructose-to-glucose ratio and crying and sleeping times were unchanged in infants fed white grape juice regardless of the presence or absence of IC. Expand
