D: Noted Baltimore Physician and Author. : The usual American, child, born at full term of. healthy' parents, is destined"to1 suffer Sbout ten times as many rljs- as nature intended. Why? you ask.-Simply because7 of the ignorance of, its mother, PC -,.! .C i. SlMw Dr. Hirshberg. and the faulty logic, following the observations of other children, of its grandmother. When the infant yells, "colic" nods the mother. She is apt then to do one of two things, either nurse it, making of the child a glutton, or dose if with comomile, fennel or other tea, or even a drug, "which isrwors"e Some other mothers coddle or bounce the babe until he is either sick at the stomach of vomits, usually both. Despite the universal notion that some babies are foreordained to suffer- from colic, it is really preventable. Colic is actually pain in the abdomen with more or less distention of gas in the intestines. Its presen...
