How to make your doctor squirm… ask about colic.
Maybe I’m paranoid, but to me it seemed like the doctors acted odd whenever we talked about colic.
I think part of it is that much of the studies done, have pointed to a bad home environment for baby, or a stressed mother. (a theory to which i do NOT agree with)
perhaps one of the other reasons is that there is no cure, and in the UK at least, they are trained to tell the mothers pretty useless information, like “it is normal, it will pass etc…”
When my wife asked (on my behalf) about lactose free formula for our second baby, she was ridiculed by the doctor! Even though the doctor was told that our first baby was definitely lactose intolerant. This particular doctor even said there was no test for lactose intolerance – later another doctor in the same office had a lactose intolerance test done, go figure.
