Abstract
Infantile colic is causing pain and trouble to infants and their parents. Acupuncture is used to relieve the symptoms but is not scientifically tested as treatment for infantile colic. In this study the experiences of parents, whose 68 babies have got acupuncture, were investigated. The way the parents described their babies behaviour and feeding patterns was analysed with content analysis at a manifest level. Categories found before acupuncture treatment were “crying almost all the time they are awake”, “crying spells”, “impossible to comfort and crying hysterically”, “suffering even if he don´t cry”, “restless sleep or don´t sleep at all”, “stiff like a stick”, “explosive, green stooling” and “comfort eating”. After acupuncture treatment... (More)

After acupuncture treatment the categories “not better”, “better already after the first treatment”, “almost worse the first day before it changed”, “better and better”, “stooling changed” and “don´t eat so often” appeared. Parents to 67 of the 68 infants reported that the babies crying and fussing was normalised after treatment. According to the parents experiences the babies slept better, seemed happier and were fed less often. (Less)
