An effective treatment for infant colic may be acupuncture.

A new study divided a group of colicky babies to get twice weekly standard care of acupuncture.

After two weeks infants in the acupuncture group cried significantly less than those not treated with needles.

Parents should keep a diary of their babies crying episodes, according to researchers. And eliminate cows milk in their diet before seeking further help.
