Passive smoke and infant colic

Only 32 percent of infants with non-smoking parents suffered colic after meals, while 91 percent of infants in homes where the father smoked 20 or more cigarettes per day suffered colic. As the parent’s smoking habits increased, so did the rate of colic in infants. (British Medical Journal 289:660, September 1984) Copyright 1985 Phylis Austin
